Three men have been bailed until late July after two 18-year-olds were stabbed in Owen’s Field on Monday afternoon.

They were arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm, after police were called to a brawl between two sets of males near City and Islington College’s Goswell Road campus.

The three men were aged 18, 19 and 20. A fourth man, 18, was also arrested today on suspicion of violent disorder and is being questioned.

A City and Islington student, who didn’t wish to be named, described the “chaotic” scene that occured at around 2.45pm on Monday.

“I saw a large group of men running around with knives and other weapons, including a chain and a large wooden block.

“I was in Owen’s Field at the time and all of a sudden there was chaos all around the college.

“The police were called and then I heard someone got stabbed. I was terrified the entire time.”
