“What are you doing? So sad! I can’t get out in case you get stabbed.

Others hoped that the victims were well and that the perpetrator was arrested.

One of them wrote: “Terrible news! Thoughts with the person are hoping that they will recover quickly.

A police spokesperson also appealed for information.

She said: “Anyone with information is encouraged to call the police on 101, providing the reference 679 / 07AUG.

“Information may also be provided to Crimestoppers, anonymously, by calling 0800 555 111.”

The news emerged as the Met reported that a police dog stabbed in the arrest of a suspect in Orpington in June had returned to service.

Kaiser was stabbed up to five times on the top of the head and once under the eye when attempting to subdue a suspect.

The police dog was on patrol with his handler, PC Mark Woolcott, when they were called in to report an intruder in the back yard of a town house.

At the time, Superintendent Emma Richards of the Met Task Force, which includes the Canine Support Unit, said Kaiser was “lucky to be alive.”

Sharing the news of his return to work yesterday, the Sutton Police Facebook page said: “After being brutally stabbed in June, PD Kaiser and his master PC Woolcott were greeted by our Borough Commander Dave Stringer and the Mayor and Mayoress of Bromley this morning.

“Kaiser was absolutely delighted to receive a new toy given to him by the mayor for his bravery.”
