The crime scene in Chalk Farm

CAMDEN has seen another night of violence after police officers found two men suffering from stab injuries in Chalk Farm at just after 7pm today (Friday).

Officers were called to Constable House in Adelaide Road and found one man, believed to be in his early 20s, injured. He was taken to a central London hospital by ambulance and his condition is said to be not life-threatening but possibly life-changing.

A second man, also believed to be in his early 20s, was found close by also suffering from stab injuries – his wounds are not believed to be life threatening.

A crime scene is currently in place and there have been no arrests.

The attacks follows on from the fatal stabbing of 25-year-old Assad Abdullah Yarow in Camden High Street on September 12. Just a few days before Mr Yarow’s death, Shakira Mercedes Loseke, 25, was fatally stabbed while Wilson Varela, 24, was shot to death nearby in an unconnected incident in Chalk Farm.
