There was a large police presence in Woolwich Dockyard on Wednesday evening, following a fight in Lamport Close, near to Kingsman Street at around 6pm.
Officers were confronted with a ‘hostile’ stand-off with a group of youths. There were also reports of sightings of people in possession of knives.
A Met spokesman confirmed: “Officers attended and found a large group of youths who were hostile towards police officers.
“Additional officers were called and a cordon was put in place to assist in controlling the situation.
“Nobody was found suffering injuries as a result of the reported fight.
“Four people were arrested for affray and associated offences. They have been taken into custody.”
This incident is the latest in a bloody week across the Royal Borough of Greenwich. On Tuesday, an 18 year old man went on a knife “rampage” in the centre of Greenwich, while earlier on Tuesday, two teenagers were stabbed in Plumstead.
A fight was reported in Waverley Crescent just before 4pm, on 27th August 27, where police found two teenagers who had been stabbed.
The injured teens are not in a life threatening condition and no arrests have been made.
