Man critical after being stabbed in Halloween party brawl involving killer clowns



A MAN was left fighting for life after being stabbed in a Halloween party brawl involving revellers dressed as killer clowns.

Party-goers attacked each other with belts and knives when a fight spilled out into the street.

One man with a killer clown mask was kicked to the floor as he withdrew money from a cash machine outside the scene of the party in a flat above a shop.

Another man was slashed in the face and was seen lying on the bonnet of a car bleeding.

A passer-by who went to help him was punched in the face.

Police said two men in their 20s were stabbed in the fight.

One was taken to hospital in a critical condition after the incident in Seven Sisters Road, north London.

A witness said: “I heard some shouting. There was this huge fight where people were chasing others into the road.

“It looked like something out of a slasher film – all these people in masks attacking each other. You couldn’t tell whose blood was real and whose was fake.

“I saw a victim realise he had been stabbed.

“He lifted up his jumper and there was a bloodstain on his stomach.

“He was trying to light a cigarette but started to wobble. There was one guy on the floor being kicked and being whipped with belts.

“It was horrific.’’

Another witness added: “I saw one guy lying on a car covered in blood from his head.

“Girls were screaming and trying to drag other men away from him.’’

Keli Ziu, 29, manager of nearby Top Pizza, said: “There were so many people hanging out in masks and drinking.

“The party was so loud it clearly got out of control.’’

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “Two men, both in their 20s, were taken to hospital by ambulance.

“One of the men remains in a critical condition.

“The second man was not seriously injured.’’
