Glen Huntly, Melbourne stabbing: 14-year-old fighting for his life after being forced into Volkswagen in broad daylight
A teenage boy has been left with life threatening injuries after being forced into a car and stabbed in what is believed to be a violent armed robbery.
Police are actively hunting for a group of thugs who pulled the 14-year-old into a dark grey Volkswagen Tiguan on Neerim Road outside Glen Eira College in Glen Huntly, southeast Melbourne, just after school finished at about 3:35pm.
Police said the car drove a short distance with the teenager inside before he was thrown out at the corner of Neerim Road and Grange Road.
He was believed to have been stabbed during the altercation and has been taken to hospital in a critical condition.
Investigators are exploring the possibility that the attack is linked to an earlier incident where four teenagers were robbed by two machete-wielding offenders on nearby Kambrook Road at about 3:25pm.
