A teenager’s hand was said to be left “hanging by a thread” after a terrifying axe attack in front of dozens of shoppers and diners on one of London’s busiest high streets.
The 18-year-old who was also armed with a machete was attacked by another youth wielding a hatchet in Upper Street, Islington, at 6pm last night. Another teenager, who is also 18, suffered stab wounds in the attack.It’ll come as no surprise which demographic these teenagers are from, of course.
Detectives are investigating possible links to a surge in postcode gang violence in the borough. Both teenagers were later arrested by police for grievous bodily harm.Good thing they didn’t taser these ‘vulnerable children’, eh?
