Detectives investigating a stabbing in Southwark are appealing for witnesses or those with information to come forward.
London Ambulance Service alerted police at 03.50hrs on Monday, 15 June that a man with stab wounds had been taken to hospital by car.
Officers attended a south London hospital. The 26-year-old victim’s condition was initially deemed critical but has since been assessed as not life-threatening. He remains in hospital and continues to receive treatment.
It is thought the incident occurred after a fight involving a group of men broke out at a residential address in Denmark Hill, SE24.
Detective Constable Rob Neville, investigating, said:
“We believe the victim was at a party in an address that had been rented out via AirB&B when he was attacked.
“He is incredibly lucky; but for the speed at which he was taken to hospital, this could well have been a murder investigation.
“I need to hear from anyone who was at the party and witnessed an altercation, or who saw people leaving in haste.
“This was a violent incident that nearly cost a man his life and it is imperative that we find those responsible.”
Three men, [A] 24-years-old and two 23-year-olds [B&C] were arrested on suspicion of GBH with intent. They were taken to a south London police station and later bailed.
