A TEENAGER from Thornton Heath has appeared in court charged with stabbing someone during a fight.
Police found a man collapsed in the street suffering stab wounds to his shoulder and torso on July 24.
He told officers a man had chased him into Thornton Road, Thornton Heath, and that he had used his belt to fend him off.
The alleged victim did not want to press charges and was told he would face no further action. The police then began an investigation into the stabbing.
Pascoe Petgrave, 18, of Thornton Road, was arrested and charged with causing actual bodily harm and threatening a person in public with a pointed article.
He appeared at Croydon Crown Court last Wednesday (October 8) and was given conditional bail until a plea and case management hearing on January 5.
