Man in his 20s stabbed in East London hours after teen knifed to death in capital

A MAN has been stabbed in East London – just hours after a teen was knifed to death in the capital.

Emergency services rushed to the scene in Canning Town this morning after the man was attacked amid London's knife epidemic.

A Met Police spokesperson said they had been called to Barking Road, near the junction of Ordnance Road about 7.40am.

A spokesperson said: "Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found a man – believed aged in his 20s – suffering stab injuries.

"He has been taken to an east London hospital for treatment – condition awaits.

"A crime scene remains in place."

Ambulance crews confirmed they had also sent crews to the scene, saying: "We treated a man at the scene and took him to a major trauma centre."

Police have now launched an investigation.

Last night, one boy was killed and two others injured in a stabbing attack in Croydon.

It's the latest in a harrowing spate of bloodshed as London's violent crime crisis continues to spiral out of control.

Last month, London was left reeling after three killings in just 24 hours.

It included the deaths of two teenagers – who were killed just 12 minutes apart in separate gun and knife attacks.

In May, figures revealed five young people are attacked with a knife every day in London.

It comes after two men have been charged with the shooting murder of a man in Monks Park.

Kwasi Mensah-Ababio was found with fatal head injuries in about 7pm on Sunday.

Alhassan Jalloh, 20, and Karlos Gracia, 22, both of Stonebridge Park, are due to appear at Willesden Magistrates' Court charged with his murder.
