Has anyone ant news on the stabbing that took place on or around taymount Rae last night? A police officer came to ask if we saw anything, which we didn't. But aside from that, we have no idea whether it's safe to go into the streets!

When I was coming back from work around 10pm last night the area of the carpark beneath the apartment block halfway up Taymount rise was taped off with police tape and a police car was parked there with somewhat unusual red flashing lights on the roof.
I asked the police what was going on and they informed me someone was stabbed and that was all I learnt.
I must say I have recently noticed small groups of youths congregating in the area where the stabbing took place, sometimes around a car, they didn't give off particularly friendly or innocent vibes, Don't know if its connected to them or not.
I checked the police twitter feed last night for any mention of it but there was nothing.
I was actually curious as to whether it was a random or gang attack because I have to walk the road late coming home from work.

Well good to hear I didn't imagine the whole thing! I've asked the Met what went on, and though I guess they are limited in what they can say, hope they will respond if we should take special care. I will of course update forum members on what they have to report.

Very unusual for TR - wonder if it was gang related and maybe they were in the wrong area ? or was he chased up TR from London road

Media have spread the 'exciting' part of the story now. Unlikely to hear much more sadly. Would be good to know though.
