A middle aged couple have been arrested after a man was found stabbed in East Dulwich – after they called police to an assault.
At 4.54 am on Sunday (May 31) 999 operators were called by a woman in her 50s, who told them a man had forced entry and assaulted her in the home on Hindman’s Road.
Police told the News that she said he attacked her before slashing her partner – a man in his 60s – in the face.
At around 5.07am the same morning officers were called to nearby Crystal Palace Road when a man, believed to be in his 20s, was found with stab injuries.
He is now in hospital with injuries assessed as not life-threatening. The couple are also not believed to be critically injured.
The man in his 60s has now been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, and the woman arrested on suspicion of GBH. They have been released on bail to a date in June.
“Officers are treating the two incidents as linked,” a Met spokesperson told the News.
“Enquiries continue to understand the full circumstances.”
