Two injured in homophobic stabbing outdoors London nightclub

Two males had been taken to hospital after being stabbed in a homophobic assault outdoors a nightclub.

The pair, one aged of their 20s and the opposite of their 30s, had been in Clapham High Street, south London at round 10.15pm on Sunday once they had been focused.

They had been handled in hospital and discharged.

Metropolitan Police are looking for the suspect within the assault they’re treating as homophobic.

Detective Inspector Gary Castle stated: “We are acutely aware of the shock this attack will cause members of the LGBT+ community and want to reassure people that an urgent investigation is ongoing to locate the person responsible.

“We recently announced the reinstatement of LGBT+ community liaison officers for each of our 12 basic command units in London to support and advise on investigations where homophobia is a motive, and to ensure the community has a dedicated point of contact to address any concerns they may have.”

Anyone with data can name police on 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD 7198/13Aug, or to stay nameless contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or on-line.
