Three men stabbed at Roddy Ricch concert in London

A fight broke out mid-way through the performance

Three men were stabbed last night during a London performance by rapper Roddy Ricch.

Police were called to the gig at Electric Brixton on Tuesday night, after a brawl broke out in the venue.

Three men, who are thought to all be in their 20s, were taken to hospital after being knifed but they have since been discharged.

Videos posted online appear to show the aftermath of the brawl, with one man clutching his arm after being stabbed.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: “Police were called to a music venue in Town Hall Parade, Brixton SW2 at 22.30hrs this evening, Tuesday, 12 March.

“It is believed that a fight broke out in the venue, during which three males in their 20s are believed to have been stabbed.

“They were attended to by colleagues from London Ambulance Service and have been taken to hospital.

“There have been no arrests at this very early stage in enquiries. The venue was evacuated and there have been no other reports of injuries.

“There are no road closures.”

Appealing for information, they added: “Call police about this incident on 101 and quote CAD 8088 of 12 March.

“Anyone who has information which could help enquiries but who does not feel comfortable talking to police is asked to contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

“They do not ask your name and cannot trace your call or I.P address.”

The rapper is yet to directly respond to the incident, but it comes amid a huge rise in knife crimes across the UK – with 42 people being stabbed to death so far in 2019.
