Five people were stabbed in the space of two hours on Friday night in a series of knife attacks across London.
The first knife attack incident involved two boys, both believed to be 16 years old, who were stabbed close to Barking tube station in east London around 6pm.
Cops rushed to the scene after a series of 999 calls, the attacker had fled leaving cops to deal with two young lads down on the pavement with serious stab wounds.
Police launched a section 60 order which allows a stop and search in the area and shortly arrested a man deemed to be the knife wielding attacker.
Just afterwards at 7.15 pm, police got a call to Abdale Road in Shepherd’s Bush west London following reports of a fight between two men.
The two men, aged 21 and 19, were discovered to have stab injuries, and were taken to hospital in an ambulance. No arrests have been made so far and police continue to investigate.
