A second teenager has been stabbed just weeks after the community called for a heightened police presence. 

The 19 year-old was attacked in Carlton Road, off Higham Hill Road in Walthamstow at around 1pm yesterday. 

A spokeswoman for London Ambulance Service said: "We sent an ambulance and advanced paramedic to the scene and treated a 19 year-old male for stab wounds. 

"He was taken to hospital as a priority."

Police have not released any details of the attack.  

It is the second time in just over two weeks a man has been stabbed in the street in the Higham Hill area. 

On July 24, a 20 year-old Co-Op worker was stabbed in the lower back as he walked home from work in Higham Hill Road at around 11pm. 

He suffered a single stab wound and spent the weekend in hospital before being discharged. 

A 42 year-old man has been charged in connection with the assault and possessing a bladed article and is due to appear at Snaresbrook Crown Court tomorrow.

Crime is down which is a good thing.

The police keep the figures low by cooking the books, by their own admission.

The feature of this crime as usual, not a policeman in sight.

The Ferals rule the roost.

What will the filth get in the form of punishment if they get to court but a slap on the wrist if even that, laws need to be reformed and punishments fit the crimes but heaven forbid if we ever infringed on the human rights of a criminal
