A 15-year-old girl and her teenage companion have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a Catford stabbing last night.

Police were called at 6.30pm last night (August 13) to Honley Road, Catford, near Rushey Green, after reports of a stabbing.

London Ambulance Service also attended the scene and took a 21-year-old man to a south London hospital.

He is currently in a critical but stable condition. 

According to neighbours, the incident began outside a Rushey Green chicken shop and quickly escalated.

Part of Rushey Green and Hornley Road were cordoned off by police this morning but have now reopened.

A 17-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. 

They are currently in custody at a south London police station. 

Detectives from the Trident Gang Crime Command are investigating and are appealing for anyone with information about the attack to call them on 020 8247 4877.

To remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

What on earth is it going to take to stop the knife crime? There needs to be stronger punishments to deter people carrying knvies in the first place.

if they carry a weapon their intentions are to seriously hurt someone therefore any incidents involving a weapon knife/gun and is used to harm another person should carry a sentence the same as murder!!!

Until the police can stop and search without fear of being anti this and racist that then these kids will be able to carry knives, the laws need to be tough, but also something needs to be done at root level to stop them carrying weapons in the first place.

Then you might as well use that gun / knife to kill someone if the sentence is the same for murder. For example the copper that has stopped you.

The sentence would be there to convince people to think twice about carrying a knife/gun. If someone wants that person dead then of course they will harm if not murder them and unfortunately no law or person can prevent that from happening.

Like i said if that person is carrying a weapon they are out to hurt or kill therefore they deserve everything they get sorry my sympathies are with the people they harm and the families left behind devastated by the loss of a love one!

I think you will find over 90% of the country will also agree!

Lies **** lies and statistics – (Good book)

Having the same sentence for carry a weapon and for killing is no deterrent. You might as well say 33mph in a 30 lose your DL ban for 2 years the same as driving at 100+mhp. Deterrent is based on the gravity of the wrong done, more severe crime should be punished more severely. Your idea takes that away.

Moron how can you compare driving a car 3mph over the speed limit and losing your driving licence to a gang member or a member of the public for carrying a knife or worse loaded gun!!!!

You obviously can’t read because if you could then you will realise i wasn’t stating people should receive life sentences if caught carrying i said if they use that weapon and only injure someone then they should receive the same sentence as attempted murder! If the scum bags carry a weapon then they are likely to use it.

The biggest problem is that these knife carrying kids carrying kids live in an alternative reality to the rest of us.
All they care about is a stupid postcode, their imagined territory or repsect (but only when its them receiving it).
Then its all about the bling, possessions and labels.

So shallow,clueless and seriously lacking in real world confidence. Its easier to hide behind some silly street name and their deluded perception of street cred and status.

Who is to blame ?

I personally blame their parents for not giving them the guiding hand in life that being a parent requires.

Its much easier as a parent to blame everyone and everything else for their failings.

I see it at the school my kids attend, the parents take the kids out of school for holidays on a regular basis, playing the system and making up excuses so they arent fined, then complain how bad the school is when their kids school reports arent good.
The same parents are the ones who dont bother with the homework thats set.

Is it any wonder we have a feral culture of kids with knives with parents like this ?

I have no idea why your comment has been thumbed down, it makes perfect sense to me, and is very evident on the streets of London's inner cities. The kids in the cities are just brainless ferals.
The trouble is what can you do about it? Just let them get on with it I suppose, but then, it is the innocent bystanders who get caught in all the cross fire between these brainless idiots that you become fearful for, who just happen to be in the wrong spot at the wrong time.
It would seem it's too late to educate the parents, as they seem as gormless as their kids and probably acted the same when they were in their teens with attitude, all because they were allowed to get away with murder because you had to make excuses for them. As I said earlier, it's in the genes.

Its not just the parents its easy to say that when the bad kids you see might have bad parents and therefore don’t have a good start in life however, there are so many factors involved you can’t just blame the parents – few examples below;

- The government took the power away from schools to discipline kids.
- kids under 16 are basically untouchable by the Police.
- The government gave free travel for kids to go where they want when they want making it easier for them to cause havoc anywhere they want.
- Parents are no longer by law able to punish their children by smacking.
- There are fewer youth clubs around today giving kids no safe place to hang with their friends off the street(Mainly due to government cut backs in local funding).
- Most working class families have both parents who work usually long hours and therefore don’t have the time available to spend with their children leaving the child to basically defend for themselves.
- Most teachers are trained to teach their chosen subject however, they are not trained to deal with difficult children within the class and on most occasions don’t know how to deal with the situation therefore that child’s behaviour is not being dealt with at school or at home.


Also I come from a working class background and received a good education I will admit from time to time over the years I took my children out of school for a few days here and there so did our friends although this was only in their early years of course and they all left with good GCSEs my eldest daughter has just received four A levels and going onto University and my son has been predicted A to C’s for his GCSEs next year. My point is using parents taking their kids out of school for whatever reason is no example to use for kids going crazy!!!
I also know of people who sent their kids to private school and paid for them to get through university only for one of them to turn into a drug addict in later life and another is serving time in prison for attempted murder therefore all because the child was brought up the best they could by their parents doesn’t necessarily mean they will turn into nice law abiding citizens in later life.
