Four people have been charged after a series of dramatic raids across Greenwich borough yesterday morning.
The main raid was at Abbey Wood’s Thistlebrook site. That raid saw dozens of police and stun grenades used which were heard over a wide area.
Two people were arrested at other sites.
The police state:
“Three men and a teenage boy have been charged after a number of proactive arrest warrants were carried out in Greenwich.
[A] James Grant, 55 (11.08.1964) and [B] Freddie Grant, 22 (24.11.1997) have both been charged with attempted murder and causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
[C] Patrick Carey, 22 (23.12.1997) and [D] a 14-year-old boy have also been charged with causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

All four males were due to appear at Bromley Magistrates’ Court today (Thursday, 9 April).
The charges follow the arrest of all four males on Wednesday, 8 April, following a series of raids across Greenwich.
The arrests are part of an investigation into the alleged attempted murder of a 33-year-old man on 29 December 2019 in Throwley Close, SE2.
