An air ambulance was scrambled after two men were knifed on a street in broad daylight showing London’s knife crime epidemic is not slowing down.
The men in their 30s were attacked in a residential street just after 6pm, yesterday, in Greenwich, south-east London.
They were taken to hospital where one remains in a critical condition and the other stable.
Jan Walford said: “London Air Ambulance just landed right behind our house in Greenwich, I hope the patient will be ok.
“It landed in Christchurch school, turns out it was for a double stabbing – the pilot was amazing.”
A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: “Police were called to Hevelius Close at around 6.10 pm on Monday, September 17 following reports of a stabbing.
“Officers, the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance attended – two men were subsequently found suffering from stab wounds.
“The men, both believed to be aged in their 30s, were taken to an east London hospital.
“‘Victim 1’ remains in a critical condition, while ‘Victim 2’ is in a stable condition; his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
“A crime scene is in place and enquiries continue to establish the circumstances – there have been no arrests.”
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
