A 16-year-old boy and a 17-year-old boy, both from Portsmouth, were also arrested on suspicion of GBH with intent. They have also been released under investigation by police. 

Speaking after the incident yesterday, Chris Jupp, owner of MCutting, said: '˜When I arrived this morning the area was all cordoned off. 

'˜I think when you work in Buckland you're prepared for anything. It's a really great place to work, but it never stops.

'˜I'd be more surprised to come in and see nothing's happened.' 

A 70-year-old passer-by from Bedhampton, who wished to remain anonymous, said: '˜I got here about 11.30am to see my sister and saw police - apparently they had been here all morning. 

'˜I'm born and bred in Portsmouth but this doesn't surprise me. It seems to be a common thing.

'˜I just hope whoever was hurt has a speedy recovery and they're okay.'
