He was rushed to a central London hospital for urgent treatment and has since been discharged.

Officers believe the victim had been attending a birthday party in the Greenwich area before he was stabbed.

A second teenage boy – aged 17 – was arrested and charged with grievous bodily harm in connection with the incident.

They are appealing for anyone who may have mobile phone footage of the stabbing, believed to have happened just before 11pm, to come forward.

The police appeal comes as another man – aged in his 20s – was stabbed to death with a machete in a brutal suspected murder in Plumstead on Monday.

Police officers rushed to Bournewood Road – just a mile down the road from St Nicholas’ Church – following reports of a knife attack at around 4.30pm.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene and witness described how the man was found inside an address close to the junction with Wickham Lane after being attacked with a machete.

Any witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Constable Andrew Payne from the Greenwich Gangs Unit on 020 8284 7755 or to give information anonymously contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
