Between 5pm and 5.20pm on Wednesday 25 January 2023, a silver BMW in Lower Road is reported to have been driven at a man standing on the pavement. 

It is alleged some men got out of the vehicle and chased the victim into St Paul’s Avenue where he suffered an injury consistent with a stab wound.

The 19-year-old was taken to a London hospital where he remains in a stable condition. It is thought the victim and the suspects were known to each other.


On the following day, a 40-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault and taken into custody.

Detective Inspector Pete Smith said: ‘An investigation is underway into the circumstances including house-to-house enquiries in the area.

​‘We are urging witnesses or anybody with information to call our appeal line. Motorists with dashcam and residents with private CCTV are also asked to check for relevant footage.’
