A teenager who was found stabbed in Bermondsey’s Grange Road late on Saturday night is not suffering life-threatening injuries, police said this afternoon (February 25).
The seventeen-year-old had previously been assessed as being “in a critical condition.”
Three boys – two aged fifteen and one aged fourteen – have been arrested on suspicion of GBH in connection with the stabbing.
The fourteen-year-old is being treated for a non-life-threatening “stab injury”, said police. The other two are in custody in a south London police station.

He was rushed to hospital by the emergency services where he remains.
