TWO teens have been stabbed in a horror attack outside Manchester College – with cops hunting for a knifeman.

Officers were called to reports of a "disturbance" in Openshaw, north Manchester at around 12.50pm.

Two boys in a large group, both aged 16, were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening stab wounds.

No arrests have yet been made, with the knifeman described by cops as a "young Asian or Indian male" with two braids in his hair.

An eyewitness told the Manchester Evening News: "I was driving past from work when I saw a group of about 30-50 young men.

"I saw one man take his jacket off and then another who had his jacket off and holding his stomach sitting on a bench."
