Tube fight duo arrested after being released from hospital

The men were found with knife wounds on Upper Tooting Road in south London.

Two men taken to hospital after being stabbed in a fight outside a Tube station have been arrested.

The pair were found with knife wounds on Upper Tooting Road, near Tooting Bec Underground, south London, at around 6pm on Saturday.

Police confirmed the men suffered superficial injures and were arrested on suspicion of affray upon being discharged from hospital. They remain in custody.

The incident was one of a number involving violence on London’s streets.

Less than half an hour after the Tooting incidents, paramedics were called to help a 14-year-old boy who had been stabbed in the leg in Lloyd Park, Walthamstow.

Meanwhile, in the early hours of Saturday, a 20-year-old man was stabbed to death in Finsbury Park, north London, “involving a number of other people”, the Met said.

One man has been charged with possession of an offensive weapon in relation to the incident.

Brayane Tchenda, of Camden, north London, is due to appear in a London court on Monday.

The capital has been rocked by a spike of stabbings and shootings, with more than 60 murder investigations launched by the Metropolitan Police so far this year.
