Two boys were on board a bus in Preston in the city’s north-east around 4.15pm on Friday when they became embroiled in an altercation.
The victim, aged in his late teens, suffered wounds to his upper body and was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The other teen got off the bus and fled the scene on foot.
