A baby is in a critical condition after being stabbed alongside a woman in west London.
Police discovered a one-year-old boy and a woman in her thirties suffering from stab wounds at a house on Swinfield Close in Feltham after being called to the scene at 7.12pm on Monday amid concerns over the pair’s safety.
Both victims were rushed to a hospital in west London for treatment.
The baby remains in a critical condition, officers said, while the woman’s injuries were described as “not life-threatening”.
Scotland Yard has launched an investigation into the incident, with police working to trace a man known to live at the address.
“At this early stage it is believed the parties involved were known to each other,” the Met Police said in a statement, adding that the force is still working to establish the circumstances of the incident.
No arrests have been made. Officers remain at the scene.
