Two men stabbed in brutal ‘linked’ knife attacks in north west London

Two men were stabbed in separate knife attacks in north west London in the early hours of today which police say could be linked.

A man, 63, was stabbed in the back in Kilburn at 1.19am and then a 39-year-old man was stabbed in the stomach a short time later.

Neither of their injuries are being deemed as life-threatening.

People in the area are being warned to 'remain vigilant' and report any suspicious activity to the police.

Detective Sergeant Mark Johnson, from North West Area's CID, said: "At this early stage in the investigation, we are keeping an open mind as to whether the two incidents are linked and there is a team of officers working around the clock who are carrying out patrols, CCTV footage enquiries and speaking to witnesses. 

"I would appeal to any witnesses or any motorists who may have dash cam footage of the incidents who have not yet come forward to contact police urgently. Any information, no matter how small, will greatly assist us in this investigation.

"Officers are currently conducting extra reassurance patrols in the area, and anyone with any concerns can speak to officers on the street, go to a police station or call 101 or Crimestoppers.

"If you are out and about in Kilburn High Street and the surrounding area I would ask you to remain vigilant, be aware of your surroundings and, if you see anything suspicious, call police immediately on 999."

There have been no arrests.
