Stabbing victim in stable condition

Detectives are appealing for information after a teenage boy was seriously injured in a stabbing in Sutton.

Police were called at approximately 5pm on Sunday, 20 December after a 17-year-old reported being assaulted near the roundabout at the junction of Culvers Avenue and Green Wrythe Lane in Carshalton.

He was approached by a man who attacked him before fleeing the scene.

The teenager self-presented at a south London hospital where he underwent surgery and remains in a stable condition.

Officers from the South Area Basic Command Unit are investigating and want to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area at or around the time of the incident.

Detective Constable Samantha Thompson said: “This was a serious assault and left the victim with significant injuries. I would urge anybody with information, no matter how small, to speak to police, so we can bring those responsible to justice.”

There have been no arrests.

If you can help please call 101 or tweet @MetCC, quoting CAD 5257/20Dec.
