An 18-year-old man was stabbed repeatedly in an attack which saw one person leaving the scene in a car that crashed into multiple cars on its way out and a man escape down an alleyway.
Police were called to reports last Tuesday that a man was being threatened with a knife in Thyme Close in Kidbrooke and found a victim suffering from multiple stab wounds.
He was taken to hospital where his injuries have been assessed as not life threatening and no arrests have been made so far.
Tracey, a neighbour who lives opposite where the incident took place, said: “I was just walking home through the alley by the car park and I heard some kind of bang then I saw a guy get out of a car with a massive knife and a mobile phone, the blade was a lot bigger than the mobile phone.
“He started running down the alley and the car started trying to drive away but it was smashing into the other parked cars then it drove off.
“That’s when I saw the man. He had a wound on his head. At first I didn’t realise he had been stabbed. I think he tried to go after the man that had run down the alley but then just stumbled back and collapsed and I saw he had been stabbed in his right hand side of his body.
“He was in and out of consciousness and then an ambulance came. “The knife was absolutely massive, it was longer than a cleaving knife. I don’t know what type it was. “I just want to say it was absolutely brilliant how everyone helped.
All the neighbours came together to help him. We called the ambulance, one neighbour was holding a T-shirt to the wound to stop the bleeding, schoolkids were walking home putting their jackets on him to keep him warm.”
