The force said it was working at "great pace" and the boy's attackers are not believed to have been known to him.
He was stabbed in the face, neck and body and remains in hospital in a stable condition.

Det Insp Nicola Walton said: "From our initial findings so far, we believe this incident was a random attack and we've been working at great pace since the report came in to establish how the boy's injuries came to be."

I've mentioned before that I believed the virus was around a lot earlier than has been stated -  I know someone who was really 'poorly' and off work for a good few months.

This means the virus may have arrived in Europe almost a month earlier than previously thought.
Dr Yves Cohen said a swab taken at the time was recently tested, and came back positive for Covid-19.
The patient, who has since recovered, said he had no idea where he caught the virus as he had not travelled abroad.
Knowing who was the first case is key to understanding how the virus spread.
The World Health Organization (WHO) says it is possible more early cases will come to light, and spokesman Christian Lindmeier urged countries to check records for similar cases in order to gain a clearer picture of the outbreak.
The French health ministry told the BBC that the government was obtaining confirmation on the case and that it would consider further investigations if they proved necessary.
France is not the only country where subsequent testing points to earlier cases. Two weeks ago, a post-mortem examination carried out in California revealed that the first coronavirus-related death in the US was almost a month earlier than previously thought.

I was at Central from 1966 to1973, the last year of the grammar school intake, and the photograph of Bill Lawes made me chuckle. There was nothing easier to deflect Curly Bill from teaching French than to mention the War. He told us about fishing drunken soldiers out of giants vats of calvados in Normandy and how you could always tell a genuine D-day veteran - they were issued with rope-soled galoshes to walk on the wet sand. He had no time for the Belgians who fired on allied troops trying to liberate them but seemed to have spent as much time developing a love of French food and wine as he did fighting. His stories were generally wasted on us as immature teenagers but it is funny how i can still remember them almost 50 years later. Steve (Zip) Nolan
