London’s Air Ambulance was called to the scene

Police are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was stabbed in Abbey Wood over the weekend.

London Ambulance Service crews discovered an 18-year-old man had been stabbed in the leg when they were called to Eynsham Drive at around 12.30pm on Sunday.

Eye-witnesses spotted London’s Air Ambulance landing at De Lucy Primary School to treat the victim, before he was flown to “a major trauma centre as a priority,” LAS confirmed.

A spokesperson from Met Police said: “We were called by LAS to Eynsham Drive to reports of a stabbing.

“At the scene officers discovered an 18-year-old male had suffered a stab wound to the leg.

“He was taken to an east London hospital. There have been no arrests.

“Anyone with information concerning the incident who has not yet come forward should call Greenwich CID by dialling 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Police are continuing to investigate.
