A man, believed to be aged in his late 40s, was found at a Peckham, South London bus stop at about 6.30 Saturday morning with multiple stab injuries and was rushed to a south London hospital.
He remains in critical condition, according to the Met.
A witness, a 37-year-old man from Peckham Rye, said: “I saw it on my way to work. I can’t believe this sort of thing is happening in broad daylight on a Saturday morning on a high street. It’s so shocking.
“It was at a bus stop and there were lots of people gathered around. It was quite early but there were still people going off to work. They looked really worried.
“The man was on the ground being treated, I think by police. There was already a police car there and another pulled up with its light on, parking on the pavement.
“He looked in a bad way. A few moments later I saw a ambulance car rushing up Peckham High Street.”
Cops confirmed the man was in a critical condition in hospital after suffering a number of stab wounds.
Another witness to the shocking morning attack said they say police and paramedics gathered around the person lying on the floor on their way to work.https://baronessj.com/vid-20180715-wa0019-1-mp4/

“It is touch and go at the moment.”
