A MAN in his 20s has been arrested after at least two people were stabbed in just six minutes in Lawless London today.

Police rushed to two separate scenes in Wandsworth after reports of a knifing this morning before a man presented himself to hospital minutes later.

The chaos first unfolded when officers were called to Burston Road in South West London at 10.42am to reports of a stabbing.

It is understood a man had been stabbed before fleeing the scene in a white saloon car.

Just six minutes later, police were called to Eastleigh Walk, about a mile away, to reports of a fight.

A man, believed to be in his 20s, was found with stab injuries.

Crime scenes were set up at both streets – the latest attacks in knife crime gripping the capital.

And cops are now linking the incidents to a man, believed to be in his 20s, arriving in hospital with stab wounds.

A Met Police spokesperson said he arrived at the South London hospital just after 11.10am.

They said: “His condition has been assessed as non-life threatening.

“He has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.”

The spokesperson added: “At this early stage, the three incidents are believed to be linked.”

A Section 60 has been put in place, which means police can search anyone in a certain area for a certain time period.

The attacks come after there have been more than 100 violent killings in London, with no sign of the bloodshed ending.

Last year was London’s bloodiest in almost a decade as the murder toll reached 135, and if the current trend continues this year the city could be on course to beat that harrowing number. 

The knife crime epidemic has become so huge some schools will be forced to install knife arches, and teachers are constantly on the watch for dangerous blades.

Hospitals in the capital treat 21 people a day for knife wounds and other injuries from assault, official figures showed earlier this year.
