A 16-year-old has been stabbed and two males arrested on attempted murder charges after a fight broke out on Harlescott Road in Southwark last night.

Police were called at around 6:10pm on July 23 to reports of a fight between a group of males armed with knives.

Met officers and the London Ambulance Service attended the scene in south east London and found a 16-year-old boy with stab wounds.

He has been taken to hospital, but his condition has been assessed as not life-theatening.

Police authorised section 60 stop and search powers and a section 35a dispersal around the immediate area to clear it.

Two males were also arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, affray and possession of an offensive weapon.

Both are currently in custody.
