Teenager hospitalised in Stockwell Tube station stabbing

A 16-year-old boy was rushed to hospital with “potentially life-changing” injuries after a stabbing on a Victoria line Tube at Stockwell station.

Police were called to Stockwell station at around 2.50pm on Wednesday to reports of a fight on a northbound Victoria line Tube.

Two males, aged 16 and 18, were arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and being in possession of offensive weapons at the location.

Paramedics took them both to local hospitals for treatment.

The 18-year-old was treated for minor injuries and has since been discharged to police custody. The 16-year-old remains in hospital receiving treatment on two puncture wounds – his injuries are potentially life-changing but not life-threatening.

Detective Inspector Paul Attwell said: “This was a particularly violent incident on a busy Tube service that has resulted in a young man sustaining serious injuries.

“We are keen to speak to anyone who was on board the Tube at the time or at Stockwell Underground station as they may have information that could greatly assist our investigation.

“Witnesses, or anyone with information, can contact us by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 341 of November 23.

“Passengers can expect to see additional officers at Stockwell Underground station following the incident and I would urge the public to approach them if they have any concerns or information relating to yesterday’s incident.”
