Our statement in response to the stabbing incident on Saturday 13 February

The video incident circulating on social media is of a group of youngsters involved in a fight at our Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre. We don’t know the cause of the fight and are reviewing the video footage of the incident and will interview our own security personnel to get further detail from their own report.

The incident happened yesterday early evening and resulted in one youngster being stabbed in the back. Our security personnel did come onto the scene to disperse the group and ER24 were called to attend to the stabbing victim who was then released to his family who came to fetch him. No other casualties are reported.

At this point neither the victim nor relatives have laid a charge with the police which would allow us to assist the police in identifying and apprehending the person or people involved. We would encourage them to do so.

The V&A Waterfront manages a comprehensive security operation with security personnel on foot, motorbikes and vehicles including armed and fast response as well as CCTV and other measures. This is an isolated incident and we’ve immediately increased personnel on the weekend to monitor the situation.
