Detectives appealed for witnesses following a stabbing on board a train in Hounslow last night.

Just before 6.40pm on Sunday evening officers from British Transport Police were called to Hounslow station. Paramedics were also called to the scene, where a man in his thirties was treated for multiple stab injuries.

He has been discharged from hospital where his injuries were described as not life threatening. The stabbing happened on board a service travelling between Ashford (Surrey) and Hounslow. 

A 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy have been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm. They remain in police custody.

Officers are aware a number of other passengers were on board and would have witnessed what happened. Therefore, if you were on board and haven’t already spoken with police, please get in touch.

You can contact BTP by sending a text to 61016 or by calling 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 374 of 19/01.
