A man in his early 20s has been stabbed in Furzedown Recreation Ground, hours after the terrorist stabbing attack in Streatham.

Police were called just before 6pm on Sunday, February 2, to reports of a stabbing at the park, and a man in his teens or early 20s was taken to hospital where his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

A Section 60 stop and search order has been authorised for both Wandsworth and Merton following the stabbing, and no arrests have been made at this stage.

Four hours before this incident at 2pm, a man was shot dead by police on Streatham High Road after stabbing numerous members of the public.

The attacker has now been named as convicted terrorist Sudesh Amman, who has recently released from jail despite warnings he posed a continued risk.

The 20-year-old was under active surveillance from police as part of an anti-terrorism operation, and armed officers were in "immediate attendance."

Two people were stabbed in the confirmed terrorist incident, but both are thought to have non-threatening injuries.

The Section 60 was issued by Met Police following the stabbing just a mile down the road in Furzedown Recreation Ground, SW17.

Any witnesses to this incident are asked to call police on 101 quoting reference 5380/02feb. To remain anonymous please contact Crimestoppers.

Section 60 powers are a tactical option which police can use in the prevention of serious crime and to detect dangerous objects and offensive weapons.

It also gives police the right to search people in a defined area during a specific time period when they believe, with good reason, that serious violence is likely to take place and it is necessary to use this power to prevent such violence.
