A MAN was stabbed in Camden Town during a street fight last night (Tuesday).
The attack is believed to have taken place after a drug deal went wrong.
Police and emergency services rushed to the junction of Lyme Street and Camden Road at around 8.30pm where they found a man suffering from a stab wound.
The man, aged in his 20s, was taken by ambulance to a Central London hospital. His condition was initially serious, but is now stable and not believed to be life-threatening.
The stabbing comes three days after a 27-year-old woman was robbed at knife point by two teenage girls behind the Prince Albert pub on the same street.
At about 1am the victim was approached by two suspects, one of whom asked her for directions. Her handbag was then grabbed and the first suspect pulled out a knife.
