Police investigating the stabbing of a man in Crawley have released new images of two men they would like to talk to in connection with the incident.
The 30-year-old victim from London was attacked and left in a critical condition in Broadfield Barton around 11.40am on Sunday, September 1. He was taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting where he remained for several days for treatment, but has now been released and is expected to make a full recovery.
Detective Constable Adam Tidy said: “This was a very serious assault, the suspects armed with weapons in the middle of the day in a busy shopping area, with lots of people, including children around. We are keen to speak with any witnesses and particularly anyone who might recognise the men in these photos, which were captured around the time and close to the location of the stabbing.
"If you have any information at all, please contact us online or call 101 quoting Operation Barnstaple."
