London bloodbath: Three stabbed in Leyton – woman fighting for life

The woman, aged in her thirties, and two men were found in Church Road, Leyton. Emergency services attended the scene shortly after 3.30pm.

The woman is in a critical condition, while the two men’s injuries are not life-threatening or life-changing.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said: “Police were called to Church Road, E10 at 3.37pm on Saturday, January 5 following reports of a man injured.

“Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found a woman with stab injuries and two men with slash wounds.

“They have been taken to an east London hospital for treatment.

“The woman aged in her thirties is in a critical condition. Both men’s injuries are not life threatening or changing.

“No arrests have been made. A crime scene is in place. Police in Waltham Forest continue to deal. Enquiries continue.”

A London Ambulance Service spokesman said that an air ambulance was sent to scene.

The spokesman said: “We were called at 3.38pm today to reports of a stabbing in Church Road, Leyton.

“We sent three ambulance crews, a paramedic in a car and an incident response officer, and also dispatched London’s Air Ambulance.

“We treated two men and a woman at the scene and took all three as a priority to hospital.”

The stabbing is the latest violent to grip the capital, after security guard Tudor Simionov was stabbed to death in Mayfair on New Year’s Day.

Mr Simionov, 33, was working outside a private event at Fountain House in Park Lane when he was attacked.

Two of his colleagues, aged 29 and 37, and a 29-year-old woman were also stabbed in the incident. Their injuries were not life-threatening.

Mr Simionov was the second person to die in the capital in 2019, after mother-of-one Charlotte Huggins, 33, was stabbed in Camberwell, on January 1.

Ms Huggins was attacked at a home in John Ruskin Street at around 4.20am.

She was pronounced dead at the scene, with a post-mortem examination showing she suffered a single stab wound.
