A 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm following the stabbing in the back of a teenager.
Police and paramedics found the 17-year-old victim in Island Row, Limehouse, on Friday, September 21.
He was fighting for his life when he was taken to hospital but his condition is now stable, police said.
