Four Arrested After Police Raids
Police officers have carried out raids at homes of suspected gang members in Lambeth after seven stabbings over the last week
MET officers entered eight properties and arrested four young men for conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.
The arrests are not in connection to the murder of Kwame Ofosu-Asare - the 17 year old who was stabbed in Brixton on Friday.
Although it is thought those arrested may have information related to his murder as well as other stabbings.
The arrests were carried out by officers from Lambeth Borough and Trident Gang Crime Command, assisted by the Territorial Support Group.
Extra patrols have been stepped up in the borough to act as a strong deterrent to anyone thinking of committing further violencefollowing the spate of stabbings.
Commander Steve Rodhouse of the MPS Specialist Crime and Operations Directorate said: "Today's raids send out a clear message that the mindless violence that has affected Lambeth and other parts of London recently will not be tolerated.
"Our priority is to find out what has happened, bring those responsible to justice and prevent any further incidents in the coming days and weeks. We will continue to aggressively pursue any lawful opportunities against those who choose to become involved in violent crime, so that we can protect potential future victims, the community and the wider public."
