Detectives are renewing their appeals for information and witnesses after four people were stabbed in Edmonton the day after a shooting in the same area.

Police were called to Fraser Road, Edmonton at 17:55hrs on Sunday, 18 November, to reports of a fight.

Officers and the London Ambulance Service (LAS) attended and established a large group of up to 10 males have attacked the occupants of a car.

Four men from the car, all aged in their 20s, were found with stab wounds. They were all taken to north London hospitals.

Two of the men have since been discharged from hospital. One man has minor injuries whilst the fourth man remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

No arrests have been made. A crime scene remains in place in Fraser Road.

At this early stage, officers believe the incident is linked to the shooting in Gordon Road, Edmonton the previous evening Saturday, 17 November in which three males were shot at in a parked car. None of those injuries are life-threatening but two men remain in hospital - one has serious injuries.

Both attacks appear to have been targeted against specific individuals.

DCI John Hughes from Trident Area and Crime Command said: "These two separate incidents in Edmonton over the last two days are being treated as linked. We are taking both incidents very seriously. Violence like this has no place in our streets and my team are busy working through CCTV footage, knocking on doors, speaking to locals to build a clearer picture of what took place. A section 60 remains in place and officers will be carrying out stop and searches.

"Specialist officers from the Met's Violent Crime Taskforce will be supporting the increased policing activity in Edmonton. The local community can expect to see more police on the streets. Officers will be on hand to listen to their concerns.

"Although none of these stabbings or the shooting resulted in death, they could easily have done. Two men continue to receive treatment in hospital for serious injuries. Their conditions are however stable.

"I completely understand the concern and alarm they have caused to those living in the Edmonton area and Enfield as a whole. Neighbourhood patrols have also been stepped up in the area and my team are ready to take calls from those with information."

Anyone with information that may assist police should call Trident on 020 8201 2713 or 101 quoting CAD 5644/NOV18.
