Global Police

Men with stab wounds held on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm in Kensington.

Two men have been arrested after a stabbing incident at Sony Music’s headquarters in west London.

The Metropolitan police said two men were being treated for non-life threatening injuries after being found with stab wounds at the scene in Kensington. Both were arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm before being taken to hospital.

A spokesperson for Sony Music said the incident involved two members of the company’s catering team who were involved in a “violent altercation”.

Firearms officers and the London ambulance service were called to the scene shortly after 11am on Friday, the Met said.

A Sony employee, who did not wish to be named, told the Press Association: “We just heard screaming and running and people slamming doors.”

The kitchen workers, who are employed by a catering company, were “running round chasing each other” and “slashing each other up”, he added.

Witnesses to the incident near the record label’s offices in Derry Street reported staff running away from the building, which is opposite Northcliffe House, the home of the Daily Mail, Independent, Metro and other media organisations.
