A Jewish teenager was seriously wounded in a stabbing at a London park.

The 16-year-old, a student at London’s Jewish Community Secondary School, was stabbed 12 times in the legs by a group of men. Police said the teen did not know his assailants.

The Community Security Trust, a nonprofit that helps secure British Jewish institutions, said the attack “is not believed to be antisemitic.”

The teenager was walking with a group of girlfriends in Regent’s Park on Primrose Hill when he was attacked just before 9:15 p.m. Police and paramedics rushed to the scene.

He was taken to the hospital, where he is in serious but stable condition and will likely need surgery. Scotland Yard said the suspects are four white males. No arrests have been made.

Regent’s Park overlooks the British capital and is surrounded by some of London’s most expensive properties, including some owned by celebrities.

Local residents expressed surprise to the London Evening Standard newspaper, with one saying, “There has been a spate of scooter thugs coming along and grabbing phones but not stabbings. This is an escalation in violence; it’s very shocking.”

  1. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several
    websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?

    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

  2. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you
    ought to publish more on this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but generally folks don’t talk about such subjects.
    To the next! All the best!!
