Stab victim suffers ‘life changing’ injuries after multiple stabbings at Silvertown party

Two men were found with stab wounds to their chest after police were called to reports of a disturbance at a party.

One of the men, aged 20, is said to have sustained “life changing” injuries and remains in hospital along with the second man, 19, whose condition has been described as not life threatening or life changing.

Police believe a party was being held at an address in Connaught Road, Silvertown, in the early hours of the morning on Sunday, September 1.

Two men, both in their twenties, have been arrested on suspicion of GBH offences and have been bailed to return to an east London police station in November,

A third man, also 20, who suffered a minor head injury at the party which more than 100 people are believed to have attended has since been discharged from hospital.
