A TEENAGER is recovering in hospital after he was stabbed in the legs.

It is believed three people set on him at a property in Chidham Close, Havant, on Tuesday afternoon.

The 18-year-old’s injuries are not life-threatening.

Police are trying to trace three people who were seen leaving the property between 12.30pm and 1.20pm.

They are a black man aged around 33 and wearing a black coloured padded jacket, a man with tanned complexion, 6ft 1in, with a thin moustache on his upper lip, and a woman, also tanned, in her late teens. She was possibly wearing a red top or scarf.
