One man in his 20s, who was arrested at the scene, received a head wound apparently during the fight. Police are still hunting a second suspect. It’s unclear what the fight was about.

The Telegraph quotes a Scotland Yard spokeswoman as saying

We were called at 3.45pm to reports of an injured man at the Glades shopping centre.

Officers arrived at the scene and found a man believed to be in his 20s with a minor head injury.

At this stage, officers believe he sustained the injury as a result of an altercation. The injured man has been arrested for affray and possession of an offensive weapon. He currently remains in custody at a south London police station.

Officers have recovered two knives and are seeking to trace a man who was seen running off, possibly discarding a weapon. Enquiries continue.
