Wealdstone: Man and two boys arrested over triple high street stabbing


wo boys and a man have been arrested after a “shocking outburst of violence” on a busy north-west London high street.

Police were called to the stabbing just after 7pm on Tuesday on Wealdstone High Street in Harrow.

Alongside paramedics, they found two boys, aged 14 and 16, with stab wounds and rushed them to a west London hospital where their injuries were deemed not life-threatening.

A short time later, a 22-year-old man was found outside Harrow and Wealdstone station with stab injuries.


All three were arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.

While the 16-year-old was released on bail, the 14-year-old remains in police custody.

The 22-year-old man is still in hospital, police said.

Officers described the stabbing as a “shocking outburst of violence,” which has “caused considerable concern within the community.”

“Thankfully none of those injured are seriously ill but it is imperative that we get to the bottom of what has happened,” said Met Detective Inspector Jonny Newell, who urged witnesses to come forward.

“The incident took place at a time when the area was busy with people. Some have spoken to us but there are likely others who saw the incident or captured footage of it on their mobile phones who have yet to come forward.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call 101 with the reference 6046/30NOV. Information can also be provided to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
