Crown Court stabbing

A young man was stabbed in the entrance to a court building today and a gang of youths was seen running from the scene. Shocked court staff looked on as the young black man lay in the security entrance to Inner London Crown Court with bloodstains on his white T-shirt while paramedics treated him.

Four or five young men were seen running from the scene through the car park, some with scarves covering their faces and some with hoods up. Several police officers and paramedics attended the scene and the victim was stretchered into an ambulance and given oxygen before being driven away.
