A Surrey Police Spokesman said: “The charges relate to an incident where an 18-year-old man was stabbed in Potters Way, Redhill, shortly before 1.30pm on 29 January.

“He was taken to hospital with serious injuries but has since been discharged from hospital.

“The 16-year-old will also appear on an unrelated charge in relation to an assault in Horley that took place in 2017.”

Officers are still trying to trace Horley men Jack Williams, 27, and Cary Searle, 19, in connection with the ongoing investigation, added the spokesman
