Two arrested in connection with double stabbing in Tower Hamlets
Police have arrested two men in connection with a double stabbing in Tower Hamlets.
The pair - aged 21 and 24 - were arrested on suspicion of Section 18. GBH with intent and remain in custody at this time.
Police were called to Golding Street at 17:43hrs on Sunday, 12 September following reports of a stabbing.
Officers attended with London Ambulance Service paramedics and found a 19-year-old man with a significant knife wound to the arm. He was taken to hospital where his condition was assessed as non life threatening but likely life changing.
A second man, aged 20, was found with a knife wound in nearby Christian Street. He was taken to hospital for treatment and later arrested. He was later released on bail.
We are aware of a video on social media showing a male who is visibly injured on a street in Tower Hamlets.
The first half of the video appears to have been filmed following an incident in Golding Street, E1 that is under investigation. It has not been possible to determine where or when the second half of the video – which appears to show officers making arrests – was filmed or what it relates to.
Police believe a number of people witnessed the incident and may have filmed video. They are asking anyone who has footage of the incident to call 101 or tweet @MetCC ref CAD 5643/12 Sept.
