Three teenagers have been arrested after a 17-year-old and a man in his forties were stabbed in Harold Wood, last night (Tuesday, March 27).

Police were called to Squirrels Heath Road at 7.45pm.

The 17-year-old was treated at the scene for a minor stab injury and a man in his forties was taken to an east London hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

A London Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We sent an ambulance crew and a single responder in a car.

“We took a person as priority to a major trauma centre.”

The 13-year-old was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and taken to a police station where he remains in custody.
