A man has been arrested in relation with the homophobic stabbing of two men outside the Two Brewers pub in Clapham last month.
The men were taken to hospital following the incident, but both were later discharged.
Police said a 19-year-old was arrested in South Norwood this afternoon, on suspicion of two counts of grievous bodily harm.
Detective Superintendent Vanessa Britton, Central South Command Unit, said: ‘This arrest marks a significant development in our investigation.
‘The two victims have been informed and continue to be supported by our officers, including our dedicated LGBT+ Community Liaison Officer (CLO).
‘I know the concern and distress this horrific incident has caused among the LGBT+ community and I want to reassure them – and Londoners as a whole – that a team of officers is working diligently to investigate.’
