Boy, 14, stabbed on way to school in Lewisham

imagePolice were called to Deptford Green School near New Cross Road at 8:40am today where they found a 14-year-old boy with a non-life-threatening stab wound. A spokeswoman for the school said: “A boy arrived at school with what looked like a stab wound and we dealt with it quickly. “We believe it is something that happened on the way to school, with a pupil from another school. No pupil from this school has been arrested.” A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said that they believe the incident happened near Avonley Road, and that a weapon had been recovered. The injured boy was taken to a south London hospital and is in a stable condition. Scotland Yard’s Lewisham Borough Twitter feed added: “This could have been much worse. It’s only luck that this child wasn’t more seriously hurt.” The stabbing comes the day after Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, said he would like to see Enfield’s Law brought in, which would see people caught carrying a knife for a second time get an automatic jail sentence.
