Two men, both in their 20s, were stabbed in two separate attacks just a few minutes apart late last night.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed they were called just before midnight to a busy junction in Waterloo Road, Romford where they found a man, believed to be in his 20s suffering from stab wounds.

He was taken to hospital and his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Waterloo Road is closed this morning as officers investigate, with a block of flats on the Waterloo Gardens estate also cordoned off.

No arrests have been made and inquiries continue.

In a second incident, another 20-year-old was found with stab wounds in a residential road in Harold Hill last night.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed they were called at 23.55pm to reports of a man stabbed in Whitchurch Road, Harold Hill.

He said: “Officers and paramedics from the London Ambulance Service attended the location. The 20-year-old victim was taken to hospital.

“His injuries are not life-threatening.”

There have been no arrests at this stage in the investigation. Inquiries continue.

It is not clear at this early stage whether the two incidents are related.

The news comes less than a week after 20-year-old Hosam Eisa was stabbed to death in The Brewery Shopping centre’s car park.

Anyone with any information can contact the police on 101 or tweet @MetCC.

Information can also be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
