Officers were called at 5.38pm on Monday, 27 Febuary after receiving reports of the stabbings in a chicken shop in South Street.
Three boys, aged between 15 and 17, were found at the scene with knife wounds and taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
Three teenage males have been arrested on suspicion of public order and weapons offences.
They remain in an east London police station at this time.
Lead on Neighbourhood Policing in Havering, Superintendent Lisa Butterfield, said: “Our investigation is progressing swiftly, with a number of arrests already made and a coordinated response between local police teams and CID colleagues.
“Officers will be patrolling in the town centre at key times all week to reassure local people, and I encourage anyone who is concerned or anxious to approach those officers.
“We know that there were a number of people in and around the shopping centre when this incident happened – if you are one of those people and you haven’t yet spoken to police, please do get in touch.”
Superintendent Butterfield, added: “We understand how disturbing knife incidents can be to local residents, particularly parents, but I can reassure you we have our investigation team working around the clock to ascertain exactly what happened yesterday and to bring the offenders to justice.
“Our neighbourhood and schools officers continue their patrols – in and around schools, and along key transport routes and hubs.
“We will be using a range of tactics to disrupt and deter those who seek to bring violence to Romford so that people can go about their day safely.
“If you have any information that can support our investigation, I urge you to come forward.”
