Teen stabbed in Wandsworth now in stable condition
One of the two teenagers stabbed last night is now described as being in a "stable" condition, though the other one is still fighting for his life.
Police were called to a fight involving a group of teenagers in Garratt Lane, Wandsworth, at 10.05pm last night.
Shortly afterwards they found two 19-year-old men suffering from stab wounds to their torsos in nearby Malva Close.
When they arrived in hospital one was in a serious condition the other was critical.
A man in Malva Close, which lies next to the Old Burial Ground, said he and his girlfriend heard shouting and swearing outside their house just after 10pm.
Another neighbour said: "I heard the shouting last night and locked my door because I have kids. I head ambulances arrive but really glad to hear no one has died because I was very worried."
Police set up a number of cordons around the crime scene, including the Garratt Lane entrance to the Old Burial Ground, Malva Close, Geraldine Road and West Dean Close, while forensic experts trawl the park.
The Old Burial Ground is a popular walkway for commuters in the area who use it as a shortcut.
But the cordons mean commuters are finding it very difficult to navigate the area.
One commuter said: "I've been walking around for 30 minutes and can't work out how to get down to Garratt Lane."
Detectives from Wandsworth are asking anyone with information to call 0208 247 7521, or anonymously call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Four men have been arrested in connection with the incident, two aged 19, one aged 22 and a 17-year-old, all on suspicion of GBH.
They remain in custody.
