A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after two people were stabbed in southwest London.
Both victims were rushed to hospital after the incident in Surbiton at about 1.45pm on Sunday.
One person is believed to have been assaulted at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Portsmouth Road and another was attacked at a BMW garage next door, Surrey Police said.
“While we appreciate that this may be extremely concerning, we would like to reassure you that we believe this was an isolated incident,” they said.
“An investigation is under way to establish the circumstances of the incident and remains ongoing.”
Mark Knight, 41, who lives in Long Ditton, Surbiton, said that he saw someone in handcuffs.
“There was another guy that came out with a bandage around his head and his bicep. They put him in an ambulance,” he said.
Another resident, Fraser Howie, 36, who lives in Portsmouth Road, said he witnessed commotion from his upstairs window.
“[I saw] lots of police cars,” he said. “There was one car sitting in the middle of the road which was obviously where all the commotion was around.”
The public were initially warned to stay away from the area while police responded to the incident.
The man who was arrested remains in custody, police said.
Witnesses or anyone with information that may assist the investigation are being urged to get in touch with police.
