Stabbing outside Sylvan Post on Dartmouth Road

Terrible to hear a young lad has been stabbed outside the post… My wife and kids were returning from WHSmiths and saw police trying to revive the lad who was clearly in poor shape… Too close to home and so very sad…

Please comment if you have any updates.

Awful news. Hope the poor lad pulls through. Thanks for sharing, @jonnoprice

Dreadful. Thoughts to the family. London must find a way out of this violent crime epidemic.

Just awful. Glad there are witnesses and cctv. Too much of this is happening. Hoping for this poor boy and thoughts are with his family. This is quite near to my girls school and is such a worry

That is good news.

We need our police officer numbers reinstated ASAP. The disgraceful cuts by Mrs May and co mean there is little deterrent or community police presence any more. Things will just get worse until they put this right.

Great news, @tompickering. Thanks for sharing :+1:
