Man, 21, badly beaten, stabbed by teens in Naples (ANSA) - Naples, January 27 - Police are investigating after a gang of as many as eight teens brutally attacked and stabbed a 21-year-old man who was reported Monday to be in stable condition in hospital in Naples.

The ferocious assault on the man, who remains in serious condition in hospital, ended only when a police patrol arrived and seized a 15-year-old.

The attack, which has not yet been explained, occurred in the city's notorious Scampia neighbourhood, known for gang violence.

Police are still looking for the knife used to repeatedly stab the victim.
