Three teenagers were found stabbed in nearby streets in north east London, police have said. Officers were called to Lukin Crescent in Waltham Forest at 3.07pm on Monday where a 15-year-old boy had been stabbed, Scotland Yard said. Shortly afterwards, police were called to Westminster Gardens where two 19-year-olds had also been knifed.
The victims were taken to hospital but their conditions were not yet known, a spokesman said.
Four arrests have been made. Prime Minister Theresa May recently held a summit on knife crime following a spate of bloodshed across London and the rest of England since the start of 2019. Last week a man appeared in court in connection with five knife attacks that took place in Edmonton, north London.
One of the victims, a 45-year-old woman, was left paralysed after her spinal cord was severed in the attack. Earlier this year 14-year-old Jaden Moodie was stabbed to death in Leyton, in Waltham Forest, after a group of five men in a black Mercedes rammed him off a moped, police believe. Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
