Stab victims turn up at accident and emergency

Blood stains on pavement in Albany Street

14 March, 2019 — By Samantha Booth

TWO injured teenagers staggered to hospital after being stabbed near the Regent’s Park estate.

Blood-stained footprints were still on the pavement in Albany Street, near the junction with Chester Gate, yesterday (Wednesday) morning after police crime scene investigators left.

Officers were called to reports of a fight at 11.15pm on Tuesday, but when they arrived the victims, two men in their late teens, had left the scene.

They were found after taking themselves to hospital.

Neither is in a life-threatening condition. A Section 60 order – which gives officers the right to stop and search without suspicion – was brought in around NW1, NW5 and WC1 shortly afterwards and continued until 10am yesterday.

Police are appealing for witnesses to call 101, quoting CAD 8361 of March 12, or Crime­stoppers on 0800 555 111.
