Emergency services descended on Abbey Wood on Monday night after a stabbing left one man in a major trauma centre with serious injuries.

Paramedics arrived in Hartslock Drive by road and by air at around 7pm to treat the man in his 20s, along with another man in his 50s, who had suffered a foot injury close to the scene next to Southmere Park.

A spokesperson from London Ambulance Service said: “We were called at 6.54pm on Monday to reports of a stabbing in Hartslock Drive at the junction with Seacourt Road in Abbey Wood.

“We sent two ambulances, a fast response car and an incident response officer to the scene. The first medic arrived in less than seven minutes. We also dispatched London’s Air Ambulance.

“We treated two patients at the scene – one was taken as a priority to a major trauma centre, the other was taken to a local hospital.”

London Air Ambulance was called to the scene behind Willow Bank Primary School’s playing fields, but did not carry either patient to hospital.

According to Met Police, neither of the injuries were life threatening, but both are being treated as part of the same investigation.

So far, details on how the older victim came to be harmed have not been revealed.

Hours after the incident, Met Police arrested a 19-year-old man on suspicion of grievous bodily harm early on Tuesday morning.

He was detained at a south London hospital, and on Wednesday, police announced the teenager had been released with no further action.

The force went on to confirm enquiries into the attack are ongoing.
