Police have provided an update on the condition of a man who was stabbed in Mitcham yesterday afternoon.

Police were called to Lammas Avenue, at midday to reports of two males fighting, although photos from the scene show the attack happened in the Upper Green east area.

A spokeswoman for the Met Police said: "Weapons were seen during the incident, which left one 20-year-old man with a leg and arm injury.

"He was taken to hospital where his condition was initially treated as life-threatening. He has since been assessed as not life-threatening.

"There have been no arrests made at this stage and a police cordon remains in place while initial investigations are carried out."

A section 60 was put in place following the incident, which allows police to stop and search without suspicion.
