Knife fight sees two injured in Woolwich Royal Arsenal site

Police arrested six people after two were knifed during a mass fight yesterday in Woolwich.

For the second day in succession the area saw large numbers of emergency services descend.

The fight was centred around Duke of Wellington Avenue on the Arsenal site. The previous day’s events occurred just over on Beresford Square as a crowd formed after an arrest.

Of the two injuries yesterday, one man suffered light injuries and the other is hospitalised.

Anyone with information can call 101 or tweet Police at @MetCC and quote CAD5341/27June.

    Well, the trash has blown over into the Arsenal Site, but then did we expect it take so long?

    Sadly the Royal Arsenal development in Woolwich as seen violence on it’s streets before. Not that long back residents on the development were subjected to muggings by groups on mopeds riding around the area.

    Tougher action needs to be taken against anti social behaviour in the area.

    I hope the victims make a full and speedy recovery.

    The area now would need constant police surveillance. One can often see ASB acts carried out by young people with no sense in their heads.There are dealers cycling past playing music indicating what they are offering, alcohol drinking and pot smoking in public by the benches on Malborough Road and muggers lurking in the back waiting for a distraction to come and snatch your mobile phone. More police presence is needed..!!!

      I agree Craig I think Woolwich as a whole now needs mor eof a police presence.

      Anti social behaviour in the area is increasingand getting out of hand.
