Two men have been arrested for possession of an offensive weapon in connection with the incident. They were taken to a south London police station for questioning. The manager of a nearby Chinese takeaway shop, who asked not to be named, said: “The people in the shop saw him and brought him inside our shop while they called an ambulance. They stayed with him until the ambulance came, it happened further up the road. The boy just lay down inside the shop here, he looked about 21 or 22. We just tried to help him, I didn’t see any blood, I was scared to look.” Police do not believe the incident is gang related.
