Police are appealing for information after a seventeen-year-old boy was stabbed in New Cross last night.
Cops were called to Wardalls Grove, off New Cross Road, at around 8.45pm, after members of the public reported seeing youths in possession of a knife.
When officers and paramedics arrived, they found the teenager suffering from stab wounds. He was rushed to hospital by ambulance, but his injuries are thankfully not thought to be life-threatening.
“It is vital that we remove dangerous weapons from unsafe hands,” said Detective Constable Pavan Sandhu, of the Met’s South East Command Unit.
“It was sheer luck that this incident didn’t result in a murder investigation. I urge anyone who has information that could identify those responsible to share what they know without delay.”
Anyone with information is being asked to call police on 101, quoting the reference CAD 8035/22Sep.
