Camberwell stabbings – screams as teen victim fled with ‘intestines hanging out’ after four boys wounded in ‘gang … – The Sun
SCREAMS were heard as a teenager ran with his “intestines hanging out” after four boys were stabbed in a “gang knife fight” in South London.
Witnesses have told how they saw a group of teens fleeing minutes before police swooped on Elmington Estate in Camberwell last night and arrested six suspects.

Pointing to the crime scene, one witness said: “Ten minutes before the stabbing I saw a whole heap of youths run down that way.
“Then 10 minutes later I heard people shouting and bawling out the back there.
“When I looked round the back there, I saw the youth come running from the block.
“He came to the corner and dropped. He was holding his belly and all of his intestines were falling on the ground.”
Footage showed police, paramedics and residents crowding near the scene of the stabbing
Another resident who filmed the aftermath heard screams and saw victims collapsed in the street.
He said: “I was sitting in my front room and I heard a loud scream, I went out there to see what happened, there was a mass of people out there.
“The scream was very, very loud, we heard it right through the flat.
“I could see injured teenagers on the floor, one of them had taken off his T-shirt – I think to put pressure on his wound.”
Abandoned first aid equipment littered the scene
His dramatic footage of the crime scene – littered with bloodied clothing, trainers and medical equipment – was taken just half a mile from where drill rapper Incognito was stabbed to death on nearby Warham Street a fortnight ago.
His death followed that of his friend Rhyhiem Ainsworth Barton, 18, a fellow drill rapper who was fatally shot on the same street in May.
Another drill rapper, Latwaan Griffiths, 18, was knifed to death and his body dumped in the middle of the road last month.
Katerina Makunova, 17, was also fatally stabbed in Camberwell in July amid a surge in knife crime in the capital.
Six males have been arrested as police investigate the multiple stabbings
Superintendent Annmarie Cowley, of Southwark police, said: “This incident is in its very early stages and at present we cannot speculate on what the nature of it may be.
“What we can say for certain is if there needed to be an example of the utter senselessness of knife crime, then this is it; four males are in hospital, and at this stage we cannot say how serious their injuries are. It is beyond comprehension.
“I would like to offer my reassurance to the community that officers are responding robustly; we remain at the scene and have also requested additional resources from the Territorial Support Group and Violent Crime Taskforce to patrol the area.”
Police and paramedics on the scene
A Met Police spokeswoman earlier said: “Police were called at 17:24hrs on Thursday, 16 August to reports of a stabbing outside Landor House, Camberwell.
