The stabbing of a 20-year-old guy in London has sparked an emergency, with the road being closed off as a result of the cut wounds.
Following reports of a stabbing on Tuesday, police went to a residential street in south London.

“Police were called to Northbrook Road, Ilford at 18:34hrs on Tuesday, 3 August following complaints of a road traffic incident involving two cars,” they stated.
“Law enforcement officers arrived with LAS and discovered two guys in their twenties, one with a suspected knife injury to his hand and the other with a head injury.
“A second man was detained on suspicion of committing GBH.
“Before being taken into jail, he was sent to the hospital as a precaution.”
The police are still on the site, and the investigation is ongoing.
