One man has been shot and two others stabbed in a street fight outside an east London Tube station, police said.
A MAN has been stabbed on board a bus after confronting another passenger who was shouting and swearing. The victim was on the Number 62 bus travelling from Glasgow city centre to Baillieston when the attack happened at around 5.30pm on Saturday.
GLASGOW allotments were vandalised and an elderly man threatened with a hammer just hours after CCTV covering the site was withdrawn. Locals who use the Oatlands Leisure Gardens, on the South Side, want safety measures to be stepped up. A new security fence has been installed, but CCTV covering the site was removed - and within hours the site in Elmfoot Street was attacked.
THIEVES have made off with more than £1,000 in a raid on an off-sales in Glasgow. A member of staff and a customer at Victoria Wine in Newton Mearns were threatened with a knife by two robbers on Sunday evening. Both men were wearing hooded tops, scarves and dark clothing.
AN 18-YEAR-OLD has been stabbed after a row broke out over another man's sideburns. Teenager Ross Davidson was repeatedly stabbed in the neck and the stomach after he made comments about another man's facial hair.
AN 11-YEAR-OLD girl was shot in the shoulder with an air weapon in a "despicable attack" as she queued at an ice cream van, police said yesterday. The victim and her 15-year-old sister were talking to the ice cream seller when a gang of youths approached in Huyton, Merseyside. One of the group, who covered his face with a scarf, pulled out the weapon and fired at the girl before he rode off his bike. The rest of the gang also fled the area.
A teenager has been found murdered in a stairwell of a block of flats in east London, police have confirmed. The 18-year-old male was found stabbed in Shearwater Court, Abinger Grove, Deptford at about noon on Thursday.
