Man stabbed near Royal National Theatre, Southbank

Recommended Posts

The seriousness of the man's injuries is not yet known.



A Met statement said: "Police in Lambeth were called to Upper Ground, Lambeth, London SE1 outside the Royal National Theatre terrace at  3.59pm on Sunday, 13 May following reports of a stabbing.

"Officers, London Air Ambulance and London Ambulance Service attended and found a man aged in his twenties suffering from a stab injury.

"He has been taken to a central London hospital. A full update on his injuries awaits.

"No arrests have been made. Enquiries continue. A crime scene remains in place."

The area is popular with both tourists and Londoners as it is populated with bars and restaurants and provides scenic views of the Thames.

An Algerian asylum seeker Abdelali Yazid, 22, stabbed two skateboarders in the same part of London last summer and was given a four-year sentence earlier this year.

Its London so my first thought is its a youth attacking another youth. Nothing to see here, move along please just part and parcel of living in a big city.

Yep, my guess too. Gangs. If it was a knife of peace, the stabby person would have kept on going until he was stopped

Given the description of the victim one assumes gang violence spilling over into a nicer area.



One witness told the Evening Standard: “They led me to the national theatre next to where the BAFTAs are and I saw them take on a stretcher a young black man from the 1st floor.

Being very PC I deliberately omitted any reference to the ethnicity of those involved. But yes, as I thought.
