At least one person was stabbed during a mass brawl in Stamford Hill in which dozens of violent youths clashed using bats, knives and even machetes following an illegal rave, according to reports.
Riot police were dispatched to stop the “violence involving machetes
and swords after illegal rave” in Stamford Hill near Lynmouth Road,
Shomrim N.E. London, a neighborhood watch group said on Twitter.
Social media reports from the scene indicated that around 30 young
people brandishing an assortment of weapons, ranging from knives to
bats, fought each other and vandalized vehicles in the neighborhood.
Police were forced to move in to quell the violence, that according
to reports, has erupted for a second night in a row. Riot police urged
the youths to leave the neighborhood before cordoning off the area. At
least one person was injured in the clashes.
“Additional officers were called to Stamford Hill estate to reports
of a fight between a large group. One person was found at the scene
suffering from a stab wound,” a London Metropolitan Police spokesman
told the Daily Star.
Police eventually dispersed the crowd and reportedly seized a large
cache of weapons in the surrounding streets of the district. The area is
home to the largest Jewish community in the British capital.
The majority of the youth aggressors were Muslim migrants but the
political correct British press either calls them “youths” or “Asian” or
doesn’t mention them at all.
Some of the youths were heard shouting “Allahu Akbar” by a few witnesses at the scene.
