We want to reassure residents regarding the police activity in Norwood Road last night.
There was a stabbing on the corner of Lancaster Avenue and Norwood Road. The victim was a young man and his injuries have been declared non-life threatening. We wish him a speedy recovery, and wish to thank the staff and customers at Thai Duck Deli last night who reacted quickly and calmly to help the victim. Thank you also to the police and emergency services who responded quickly – despite significant central government cuts to funding, these services work incredibly hard to keep us safe every day.
A number of arrests have been made – it appears to have been a family dispute rather than gang related – but if you have information regarding the incident please contact the police.
