Suspect One wanted for questioning

Police in Haringey investigating a knife attack which left four men with slash injuries have released CCTV stills as they appeal for information.

On Saturday, 28 January at around 03:40hrs, two men were standing outside the Socialite Bar in Muswell Hill Broadway, N10, when they were approached by two males.

After a brief exchange of words, the two males suddenly launched an attack.

One of the suspects pulled a knife during the altercation and inflicted slash injuries.

The attackers then fled the scene. As they made off, they wounded two other men outside the Metropolitan Bar a short distance down the road.

The first victim, a male believed to be in his late 20s, received cuts to his head and was treated at a north London hospital.

The second victim, a 25-year-old man, was taken to a central London hospital with an ear injury which required surgery. He also received slash injuries.

The third victim, 23, also suffered slash injuries to his head and was taken to a north London hospital.

The fourth victim, a 34-year-old male, took a taxi to an east London hospital before ambulance arrived at the scene. He suffered a stab wound to the neck.

There have been no arrests. Officers from Haringey borough are investigating and have released CCTV stills of the incident as part of an appeal to trace two men they would like to speak to, described as white males in their late 20s to early 30s.

DC Rob Wrightson of Haringey CID said: "This was a violent, unprovoked knife attack on several people out enjoying their night which could have had more tragic consequences.

"We are keen to trace the people in the CCTV and speak to anybody else who witnessed the incident, or who may have information about what happened."
