Metropolitan Police confirmed that two knives had been recovered at the scene of the attack. 

The London Ambulance Service treated the man at the scene before he was transferred to a nearby hospital, where he is now in a stable but critical condition. 

Superintendent Mark Lawrence said: ‘What appears to have been a minor argument has resulted in a man sustaining life-threatening injuries.

‘Officers were quickly on the scene and provided him with first aid prior to the arrival of our colleagues in the LAS.

‘He has been taken to hospital where he continues to receive treatment for his injuries.

‘Whilst it is unusual for so many people to be arrested in the early stages of an investigation such as this, due to a lack of co-operation and the necessity of securing essential evidence following a serious assault, this action was appropriate.’

Officers rushed to the scene and a total of 39 people were arrested at a house near the scene of the attack on suspicion of attempted murder
