A teenager has suffered potentially ‘life changing’ injuries after being stabbed in London.
The boy, aged 17, was found by police and paramedics with knife wounds at Edmonton Bus Station in the London Borough of Enfield, on Friday night.
Video footage has emerged of the station being sealed off with police cars descending on the scene.
A Met Police spokesman said: ‘Police were called to Edmonton Bus Station at 6.56pm on Friday, January 11 following reports of a fight.
‘Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found a 17-year-old with stab injuries.
‘However, his injuries are now not thought to be life-threatening but may be life-changing.’
The stabbing comes just days after 14-year-old Jayden Moodie was stabbed to death in Leyton, east London.
The teenager was knocked off a moped and stabbed in the back by older men.
In 2018, around a fifth of homicide victims in London were teenagers, most of whom were stabbed. The youngest were aged 15.
There were 134 homicides in the capital, last year, and already in 2019 there have been numerous fatal stabbings – the first being just hours into New Years Day.
There have been no arrests and a crime scene remains in place.
