Two reports in local media make worrying reading.
The Wanstead Guardian here has news of an arrest of man on Cambridge Park on Monday for carrying a knife.
It follows news of a separate incident on 22 October when a man was stabbed at Snaresbrook station as he got off the train following an argument with a group of boys in their mid-to-late teens.
There have also been as yet unconfirmed reports on social media about a knife attack on a man who is a familiar sight on Wanstead High Street.
