Councillor Katherine Dunne, Cabinet Member for Communities and Workforce, Hounslow Council, said: “I was very concerned to hear of the stabbings taking place in Hounslow this week. I understand that a 26-year-old man was stabbed in Beaversfield Park at around 4.30pm yesterday evening and taken to hospital. His condition is not life threatening.  A person was arrested on suspicion of GBH.

Shortly after 5pm, police received a second call to Rosemary Avenue, which is yards from the park, where a 20-year-old was discovered with a head wound. The man was treated at the scene.

The West Area Command Unit is investigating both incidents and had Section 60 and 60AA criminal justice orders in place until 5.15pm on 26 March, which gave the police increased stop and search powers across the whole of the London Borough of Hounslow. 

In light of the tragic murder that took place on Friday 22 March, and other incidents in the local area, we have tasked our police team and Neighbourhood Enforcement team to carry out additional patrols in the area.

I addition, we are actively working with police and other partners and it has been confirmed today, Wednesday 27 March, that our police resource through the West Area Command Unit will have 54 uniformed officers and 15 plain clothed officers drafted in to support our own police team and estate police officers.

Our priority is to keep everyone safe. We urge anyone who is thinking of carrying a knife – don’t. Too often we are hearing of stabbings and senseless loss of life. www.london.gov.uk/london-needs-you-alive
