DCI Massey said: “While we have made an arrest and this investigation continues to move at pace I would reiterate my appeal for information.

“The stabbing in Balham Hill followed an altercation a few minutes earlier involving two small groups of young males near to Clapham South station. However I don’t believe anyone involved had travelled on the tube.

“There were a large number of people present when emergency services arrived at the scene, and although many have come forward, I want to ensure that we have spoken to all potential witnesses.

“If you were in the area and saw anything suspicious – in particular if you saw an altercation or anything suspicious on Friday afternoon near to Clapham South station – then please call the incident room.”

Any witnesses or anyone with information should contact the Major Incident Room on 020 8721 4868 quoting CAD 5291/02 Nov. To remain anonymous please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
