The victim was taken to hospital with injuries to his stomach and chest following the attack which happened at about 1.45pm on May 16 but was later discharged.
Detectives had been trying to establish the circumstances which led up to the victim being stabbed, although it was believed to be an isolated incident.
However a police spokesman said the investigation has been closed "due to lack of evidence", adding "should any further lines of enquiry come to light it will be reinvestigated."
At the time of the incident, people living in the area said they were shocked but not surprised about what had happened due to the amount of drug dealing in the area.
