A TEEN was stabbed in the back during a mass brawl in Norwich as the knife crime epidemic rages on in Britain.
The boy, aged in his late teens, was rushed to hospital with serious injuries after the horror unfolded last night.
Cops were scrambled to Mountbatten Drive at 9.25pm after a fight between ten youths erupted.
Two men, also aged in their teens, have been arrested in connection with the stabbing and are currently being quizzed by cops in custody.
The bloodshed came an hour before a 17-year-old boy was stabbed to death in a fight outside a block of flats in Isleworth, West London.
Paramedics battled to save him but he was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.
There have been no arrests and a post mortem is being carried out.
