Two security guards were stabbed by alleged shoplifters in broad daylight on Britain's busiest shopping street today, police have said.


The guards chased a group of about eight teenage boys after they allegedly stole clothes from the Nike Town store on Oxford Street in central London at around 7pm.


There was a scuffle in the street outside the shop and one of the guards, a 33-year-old man, was stabbed in the left arm and lower back.

He was taken to hospital but his injuries are not life-threatening and it is hoped he will be discharged overnight, Scotland Yard said.


A second man, 21, was treated at the scene after being stabbed in the leg, and a female security guard, 22, was punched in the face.


The teenager who produced the knife and attacked the pair lost his t-shirt in the fight.


He was last seen running topless up Oxford Street towards Tottenham Court Road.


No arrests have been made so far, police said
