Shooters Hill College knife incident – police seek witnesses

Police are looking for witnesses after two 16 year old boys were arrested after a knife incident.

Video footage shows one boy pulling out a large knife or machete as he stumbles towards a car.

According to police:

“Police were called at 12:54hrs on Monday, 5 October to reports of two males with a knife in the street at Red Lion Lane, SE18.

Officers attended and two 16-year-old boys were arrested on suspicion of affray. 

They were charged on Wednesday, 7 October with being in possession of a knife/bladed article and affray. Both were remanded in custody to appear the same day at Bromley Magistrates’ Court. 

There were no reported injuries. 

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information or moving footage is asked to contact police on 101 or email via quoting reference Cad 3108/05Oct.” 

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

    These kids needs to be given stiff sentences rather than a slap on the wrist they are let out only to take someone’s life.

    There should be enough witnesses along with the footage. Such madness what is the matter with these idiots. I again say stop and search should be permanent on the streets of Greater London to protect all innocent law abiding citizens.

    Lorna Morgan could not agree with you more tougher sentences must be dished out by the Courts.

    The college entrance is 25 yards from my front door.

    It is obvious that drugs are carried in and out of the college by many of the students with deliveries taking place in the road during breaks.

    Perhaps the incident will lead to more checks in future.

    When they get picked up, will they be screaming Police brutality as usual and that they are the pillers of society? Get this trash off our streets. Lock them up and throw away the keys!
