IT has been a horrific weekend of violence in the capital with 4 people being stabbed in just 48-hours. Since Saturday evening (December 7), emergency services have been busy responding to knife attacks as the wave of crime continues to rage on in London, England.
At 6pm on Saturday, officers were called to reports of a stabbing on Anson Road, near the junction with Cricklewood Broadway where they found a man in his 40s suffering from multiple stab wounds. The victim was taken to a Central London hospital where it is reported that he is in a stable condition.
Just over an hour later, a man was rushed to hospital after being stabbed in a road rage dispute following a crash on Epsom Road in Morden on the A24. According to the police, the occupants left their cars and began brawling on the street, where one a man in his 20s was stabbed during the fight. The assailant fled in his car with a Section 60 stop and search order being enforced in the area by police.
Later that evening, a 26-year-old man was taken to hospital in critical condition after being violently knifed in Harrow town centre, near Costa Coffee on College Road. Forensics teams could be seen scouring the area for evidence the next morning where blood stained clothes were strewn across the street.
A teenager was then stabbed on Southwark Bridge Road in the early hours of Monday morning. The emergency services rushed the 18-year-old to hospital where it is believed that he is in a stable condition.
As Euro Weekly News understands, in all of the incidents no arrests have been made with the Metropolitan Police urging members of the public to come forward if they have any information by calling 101.
This surge of violence adds to the growing number of stabbings in London this year, where official figures have recently revealed that the number of people stabbed to death in the capital has reached its highest level since 2008.
