Greenwich stabbing: Air Ambulance lands after assault

A knife fight this afternoon in Greenwich has seen at least one serious injury.

Witnesses report a number of people involved in an incident at Barge Walk and Bessemer Place on Greenwich Peninsula.

Numerous police and paramedics are on scene. The air ambulance landed at nearby Central Park.

UPDATE: Police state that “Officers called at 4.23pm to Barge Walk to reports of men fighting. A man was found at the scene with apparent stab wounds. He has been taken to hospital in a critical condition. No arrests at this time, enquiries continue.”

A Section 60 notice for the area has been implemented.

This is the third stabbing in 10 months in the area. Last September a man was stabbed on Bessemer Place.

    We have to reamp up stop and searches and section 60 notices iff we are to ever stop these sad needless and mindless incidents from happening on our streets.
