A 17-year-old boy has been killed in an alleged “targeted attack” on the River Cam in Cambridge.

Three other teenagers, two aged 14 and one aged 17, were arrested on suspicion of murder.

Police were called by ambulance crews at 2.52pm yesterday to reports of stabbings at the Logan’s Meadow nature reserve in the suburb of Chesterton.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene just four minutes later, sparking a murder investigation.

An autopsy is still pending, but police believe the attack was targeted.

Cambridgeshire Police detectives raided a house in the town at 11.30pm last night and arrested a 14-year-old boy on suspicion of murder.

Two other boys, aged 14 and 17, were arrested at their homes in South Cambridgeshire around midnight.

All three remain in custody at Thorpe Wood Police Station in Peterborough, a force spokesman has confirmed.

Detective Superintendent Carl Foster: “We believe there were members of the public at the scene who spoke to paramedics but left before our officers arrived.

“I am appealing directly to these people to please get in touch with us.

“I appeal to anyone with information to contact us urgently.

“Although we can only confirm the cause of death after an autopsy has been performed, we believe the boy was stabbed in a targeted attack.”

Cambridge City Council leader Cllr Anna Smith told the Cambridge News that the whole city will “feel a real sense of shock and sadness at this terrible news”.

She added: “It’s not something we expect here in Cambridge and my heart really goes out to the family of the victim and his friends and all who will be affected.”
