A total of five people are now charged with attempted murder after two men were stabbed at Stovner last week.

One of the victims was admitted to the hospital with serious injuries, while the other was slightly injured after the violent incident on Wednesday last week.

Last Friday, a 17-year-old was charged and remanded in custody in the case. On Saturday, another person was remanded in custody in the case, and now the police have also arrested and charged three other teenagers, TV 2 reports. All five are charged with attempted murder.

Police attorney Kari Kirkhorn told TV 2 that a knife was used in the incident. According to Kirkhorn, the police have made “some findings and seizures” in the case.

“It appears that the parties were not complete strangers, but it is a bit early to say why the incident occurred,” Kirkhorn said.

The 17-year-old who was first charged denies criminal guilt in the case, according to defense attorney Marius Ihlebæk. According to TV 2, none of the accused have been questioned by the police.
