Police were waiting for an update on the condition of the man.

Hounslow police force is investigating and could not give the names or ages of the victims.

The force believe the pair were attacked by a man who fled the scene, and believe all parties are known to each other. No arrests have been made.

An eyewitness told the Press Association: "I made my way towards the ambulance and saw a young girl being treated for superficial neck injuries. She seemed to be okay, and she was pointing down the alleyway.

"I went down the alley as the police were taping it off and saw a man in the gutter, being treated by an ambulance crew. He was waving his arms trying to get up and they put him on a stretcher and into the ambulance."

Road closures remained in place around Kirton Close, and Chiswick High Road was open, the Met added.
