A teenager was stabbed in broad daylight in London and was transported to hospital.
A TEENAGER was stabbed in broad daylight in London and brought to hospital.
According to the Metropolitan Police, a 17-year-old teenager was stabbed in the leg and was transported to hospital this morning. His condition is not life threatening, according to sources, and cops have yet to make any arrests. The stabbing happened on Mitcham Road in Croydon, according to reports. Police have now closed off the busy road.
At 9:36 a.m. on Monday, officers were dispatched to Mitcham Road in South London.
They accompanied the London Ambulance Service to the scene.
The victim was 17 years old and was rushed to the hospital with a stab wound to his leg, according to the police.
A patrol car is parked across the road, with police tape strewn over the street, according to photos taken at the scene.
“Just left the house and saw the road is closed,” one person tweeted. Is it possible that it was caused by a stabbing? “It’s quite depressing.”
Due to the ongoing incident, the A236 is closed in both directions, and drivers have been told to expect “slow traffic.”
“There were roughly four police vans, the road is shut off, and we have seen police talking to someone in a house,” an eyewitness who drove past the site stated.
“Enquiries into the circumstances are ongoing,” a Met official noted.
“A crime scene has been established, and investigations are proceeding. There have been no arrests at this level of the investigation.”
Anyone with information can call 101 and mention the case number CAD 1896/02AUG.
