A fresh appeal for witnesses has been launched.

Two youths were stabbed in the Queens Mead Reacreation Ground, Bromley just before midnight on October 31.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found a 17-year-old boy suffering from serious injuries to the abdomen and a 16-year-old boy was found with a stab wound to the leg.

Both teenagers were taken to a South London hospital and the 16-year-old was discharged a few hours later.

The 17-year-old boy remains in hospital in a stable condition and is expected to remain there for the next few weeks.

Ten boys have been arrested in connection with this incident so far.

Four of these suspects are 16-years-old, four are 15-years-old, one is aged 14 and one is aged 13.

All have subsequently been bailed until December 1.

Enquiries are ongoing and officers will be at the location this evening conducting witness appeals.

Det Insp Linda Leicester said: “This incident has had a significant impact on the life of both the young victim and his family.

“He very nearly died.

“There were a lot of people out on the evening in question as it was Halloween and I would like to appeal to anyone who has any information to come forward and speak to us.

“All information received will be treated in the strictest confidence.”

Anyone with any information should contact Bromley Police’s CID on 07818 454470, quoting crime reference 3319889/14 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
