Investigation ongoing into ‘shocking outburst of violence’ in Wealdstone

Police have said that the investigation into the Wealdstone triple-stabbing is ongoing after three people were hospitalised with injuries.

Police were called shortly after 7pm on Tuesday, 30 November to reports of a stabbing on Wealdstone High Street.

Officers attended along with London Ambulance Service and found two boys, aged 14 and 16, with stab injuries.

They were taken to a west London hospital where their injuries were assessed as non-life-threatening.

A short time later a third person, a 22-year-old man, was found with stab injuries outside Harrow and Wealdstone Station. He was taken to a west London hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

All three victims were arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm.

The 16-year-old was released on bail. The 14-year-old remains in police custody while the 22-year old remains in hospital.

Detective Inspector Jonny Newell, North West Command Unit, said: “This is a shocking outburst of violence that has understandably 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.

“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. Please do the right thing and speak to us.”
