One dead and nine injured in spate of ‘isolated’ stabbings in Croydon
A man was stabbed to death with two others fighting for life after ten stabbings in just over two hours in Croydon.
Police said they had no information that the attacks were linked despite the five incidents occuring within just over a square mile of each other in south London.
Police were called to reports of two males with stab injuries at 8.08pm to Wisbeach Road, Croydon.
One male was taken to hospital before they arrived in a non-life threatening condition but another man was pronounced dead by paramedics.
Police didn’t reveal an age for the victim but said his family were aware of his murder.
