Three charged with attempted murder in Taunton
It has been a busy few days for the Police in our county. Following on from the charges brought for violence in Yeovil, further charges have been brought in Taunton. A man and two teenage boys have been charged with attempted murder. This follows the stabbing of a man in the Halcon area of Taunton on Saturday 18 February. The man suffered multiple stab wounds although it has since been confirmed his injuries are not life threatening.
Hamza Mahmoud, 18, of Taunton, and two boys, both aged 17 and also from Taunton, remain in custody. The boys cannot be named because of their age. All three will appear before Taunton Magistrates today, Monday 20 February.
Police are still to hear from members of the public who witnessed the incident. If you can help, please call 101 and give the reference 5223039800.
