Stabbing on Thurman Circle still under investigation

On Saturday, March 20, London Police Services were called to Thurman Circle at 2:30 a.m. where they found a 20-year-old female with non-life threatening stab wounds to her lower back and a 19-year-old female who had been pepper-sprayed. The third female in the party of three was unharmed.

The victims had been at the corner of Thurman Circle at Farnsborough Crescent when they were approached by two unknown males and a female.

The 20-year-old who sustained stab wounds said she had been punched and kneed by the men, then punched by the female — but is unsure of who stabbed her, said Const. Amy Philipo, media relations officer.

The two victims remain unidentified as of press time.

“We will not be identifying whether or not they are students anywhere,” said Philipo. “Their safety is paramount in not identifying them.”

There is still an ongoing investigation into the details of the attack; however, London Police Services will not be moving up their start date for Project LEARN because of it, said Philipo. Project LEARN is still expected to begin at the end of the school year.

Anyone with information in regards to this attack are asked to contact London Police Services at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. One of the males is described as being 5'11, with light brown hair wearing a t-shirt and jeans and the female at long curly brown hair.
