A horror weekend in south east London saw two stabbings, a dog attack and an incident of violent disorder.

On Friday (March 31), four police officers were injured as they tried to disperse a group of young people who were behaving in an anti-social manner and refusing to leave The Glades Shopping Centre.

The Met were called at 3pm and a spokesperson said they anticipated that violence might take place.

Five youths were arrested for assault on police and affray, while a sixth young person was arrested for breaching a dispersal order.

Just hours later, at 2am on Saturday morning (April 1), a man was stabbed on South Norwood High Street.

Police and paramedics rushed to the scene and a 36-year-old man was taken to hospital where his condition was assessed as not life-threatening.

A 36-year-old was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and has been released on bail.
