Waltham Forest stabbing – Second lad 'stabbed' just yards from where boy, 14, died after being knifed 'seven times' in the back

The victim was today treated by paramedics at the scene – just around the corner from where 14-year-old Jayden Moody died last night.

Police are now investigating, with ambulance crews also called to the scene.

Eyewitnesses described seeing the victim, believed to be in his late 20s, with a cut and blood on his face.

They also said his grey top was covered in blood when he took shelter in a nearby car wash on Bromley Road – just 150 yards from last night’s stabbing.

Undercover cops rushed to the scene and gave the man immediate medical attention following the incident at around 1.30pm.

The man was seen walking into an ambulance with his hood up at around 2.10pm today.

There is no suggestion the two attacks are related.

It comes after homicide detectives were called in to investigate the death of 14-year-old Jayden after he was killed last night.

Witnesses recounted how the teen – the youngest "murder" victim in the capital for two years – was riding a moped when a car travelling the opposite direction crashed into him.

Three men then got out of the car and stabbed the teen before making off in the extensively damaged Mercedes.

Speaking today, Chief Superintendent Richard Tucker said: "Everyone is shocked and appalled by this murder. The age of the victim, a boy aged 14, beggars belief and I completely understand the alarm and concern it has raised from those who live and work in the area.

"A crime scene remains in place today as officers continue their painstaking work to piece together the details of the attack. A section 60 was put in place following this incident and is being continually reviewed.

"I would urge the local community to be patient and cooperate where possible with the work detectives are getting on with in the area.

"My officers will be out working to support investigators today and be there to talk to the public and listen to the concerns they have. Neighbourhood patrols will be stepped up in the area and locals can expect to see more police.

"I would urge anyone with information on the attack to contact police without delay."

DCI Larry Smith from the Homicide and Major Crime Command added: "Everything that we have learned about this attack so far indicates it was targeted and intent on lethal force from the outset.

"We are doing everything we can to catch those who carried out this cowardly attack and bring them to justice."
