COPS probing the knifing of four teens in a row over a belt have arrested eight suspects, including seven schoolboys.
The victims were slashed during an orgy of violence on the Elmnighton Estate in Camberwell, south east London, on the afternoon of Thursday August 16th.

Two of the victims, both aged 15, were reportedly “disembowelled” in the melee, and remain in hospital.
One is said to be in a “serious but stable” condition and suffered injuries that are expected to be “life changing.”
The other is in a “stable” condition.
Police say five 15-year-olds and two 14-year-olds have been arrested on suspicion of violent disorder in connection with the incident.

One of the 14-year-olds, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was charged with possession of a bladed article and possession of cannabis.
He was bailed to appear in court next month.
The other six teens were bailed, pending further inquiries.
A 22-year-old man was also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender and released on bail, pending further inquiries.
Cops are appealing for anyone with any footage of the incident to contact them.

Horrified witnesses saw two of the teens with “their stomachs cut open”, as a boy who rushed to their aid shouted “I’ll f***ing kill him” before being bundled into a police van.
Dramatic footage showed medics battling to save them, and a woman can be yelling: “Please save them, please”.
She added: “Oh my god, what about his mum.
“Please, his poor mother, his poor mother.”
As cops collar a nearby suspect, she added: “Your friends are dying and you keep f***ing up.”

Detective Inspector Dean Purvis, of Southwark Police, said: “This remains an active and fast paced investigation and although eight arrests have been made, I remain keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened or has information that would assist the investigation.
“The community is justifiably concerned by this violent incident and I appeal to the community to come forward with information and help us bring those responsible to account.
