A teenager was stabbed after being jumped in Newington Green on Friday night – the fifth knife attack around the Mayville Estate in less than two weeks.

Police were called to King Henry’s Walk at 8.15pm after the 17-year-old had been stabbed in the hand and leg.

Medics took him to hospital with injuries not said to be life threatening or life changing.

No one has been arrested yet.

Forensic teams were seen combing the area into the early hours of Saturday morning following the attack – which happened just yards from where a man was stabbed the week before.

Then on Monday last week two more men were found stabbed after police were called to a “shooting” in Templeton Close.

On arrival, armed officers found two injured men, both in their 20s. One had been stabbed and the other shot with a pellet gun.

They were both taken to hospital as a priority by medics but are now said to be in stable condition.

Minutes later officers found a 17-year-old boy lying in Stoke Newington Road after being slashed with a knife. Witnesses told of a heavy police presence as the teenager lay injured in the street and he was also rushed to hospital in serious condition. A boy was later arrested on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon with the intent to endanger life and possession of class A drugs.

And on Thursday morning, a blood-soaked man stumbled into Tesco Express around the corner in Kingsland Road after being stabbed. He is now recovering in hospital.
