Stabbing outside Thameside Theatre in Grays

A STABBING took place outside the Thameside Theatre this afternoon in Orsett Road, Grays.

Police taped off the area after the incident which it is believed occurred around 3.30pm on the busy street.

School pupils walking home from Grays School and Grays Convent were shepherded away from the crime scene and across the road.

A police helicopter buzzed overhead.

An Essex Police Spokesperson said: “It is believed that a fight broke out between two men who were known to each other outside the Thameside Theatre.

“The fight developed into an assault.

“One man was taken to hospital with knife wounds but they are not thought to be life threatening.

“A 19-year-old male from Grays was arrested and taken to Grays Police Station.”

Police are appealing for any witnesses. Please contact 0300 333 4444

  1. NO POLICE IN GRAYS – AGAIN – WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING A POLICE STATION IF YOU CAN NOT RESPOND ON YOUR OWN DOOR STEP – LAZY

  2. This is scarey in broad daylight,in the middle of a busy road..and at school home time,thank god it wasnt one of the children.Just goes to show that you re not safe anywhere even almost next door to the police station!

  3. Essex Police seem to never be there when you need them, it takes them so long to respond that most incidents are over with before they actually bother to turn up.

    This incident just reflects society as it is, people now regularly carry knives as a form of “membership” to gangs, all that is happening in Grays is the overspill from East London where knife crime is on the rise, it will not eb too long before the gun culture starts to creep in around Thurrock.

    Successive governments and local councils ahve done absolutley nothing to stem the problems that we are seeing, they do not seek to do things for the youth who are just left to wander the street rather than having something constructive to do.
