The 34-year-old said: "We were making pancakes at my sister's with the kids. The kids said police cars were outside.

"We looked outside. There were lots of them. There were paramedics in the garden next-door. They were saying 'he's got multiple stab wounds'.

"Police cars went with the ambulance. He was outside for a good 10 minutes.

"I didn't see him get stabbed. He'd gone next door and asked for help. He didn't live there."

"He remains in a serious condition in hospital following the incident in Stockwell, Bulwell, at around 7.30pm yesterday (February 13).

"The boy suffered a number of injuries after being attacked by a group of males."

Sajeela Zaheer, 33, a mum-of-three who has lived in the area for six years, said: "This area is not very safe to live in. We get teenagers fighting all of the time. There is also a drug problem here, with people selling drugs.

"Day by day it's getting worse. The police are around here all of the time. When they are not here it happens. We're not going out anymore. We just go shopping and come home. We are just stuck in our own home.”

She added: "At about 7pm, we heard police. We saw flashing lights. I saw a police car and an ambulance."

A 60-year-old resident, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: "I'm a Tottenham fan. It was just after kick-off - 7.50pm - when I saw flashing lights and saw a police car outside. There's all the yellow markers on the road.

"I've lived here for five years and had no problems. It's mainly elderly people who live here now. There are some young people but it's mainly elderly or middle aged."
