The attack occurred just before 8:45pm around Wardalls Grove, which is a residential street near Hong Kong City restaurant.

Detective Constable Pavan Sandhu, of the Met’s South East Command Unit, said: “It is vital that we remove dangerous weapons from unsafe hands.

“It was sheer luck that this incident didn’t result in a murder investigation.

“I urge anyone who has information that could identify those responsible to share what they know without delay.”

There have been no arrests and enquiries continue.

Anyone with information is asked to call police via 101 or Tweet @MetCC quoting reference Cad 8035/22Sep.”

    I say again we need permanent stop and search introduced 24 hours a day 365 days of the year if we are to tackle these crimes and get these dangerous weapons of our streets.

    The Government and the Police Commisioners around the UK need to get permanent stop and search introduced as soon as possible.

    Police officers then need to be able to do go out about their jobs with out abuse and obstruction.

    Far too many young lives are being lost or inured needlessly on our streets and this needs to stop,

      I see no Security Devices at the entrance to schools…shops…libraries…so anyone can be carrying a knife. 17 year old…so who washes his clothes…has that person no knowledge of whats in his pockets…where he is at night…where was he going…where does he live…who was he with…basic questions but no police give us answers

    So as usual the Police know nothing and tell us nothing…but we are supposed to give them information…Why….they have the stabbed guy…more than likely there was some issue…no one just stabs someone for no reason….suggest you hold the stabbed guy for a few weeks for his own safety….500 miles away…we might learn something then

    The police have to keep a lot of information to themselves as not to hamper their investigations.It is common sense they do this in order to arrest detain suspects while investigations continue.

    It is common knowledge that most of these crimes are linked to gangs.
