Detectives are investigating the assault and are appealing for information.
Detectives investigating an aggravated burglary in Jaywick are appealing for witnesses after a teenage boy was stabbed multiple times at an address on Vauxhall Avenue.
We were called during the early hours of Saturday 31 October with reports that two men had forced entry into the address and assaulted the teenager with what has been described as a large knife.
The men took money and left the property.
The teenager was taken to hospital with injuries that are thankfully not being treated as serious and considered to be superficial wounds.
We would like to thank everyone who has provided us with information about this incident so far and we understand that local residents will feel concerned.
We are treating this as a targeted assault, however please do speak to our officers who will be in the area if you have any concerns.
Detectives would still like to hear from anyone who saw or heard any suspicious activity in the area between 2-2.30am on Saturday 31 October.
They are particularly keen to hear from those who have CCTV, dash cam or doorbell footage.
