Detectives urge witnesses to assault in east London to come forward

Police are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was stabbed in an attack on Manchester Road, E14.

The 15-year old was stabbed after being chased through St John’s Park; he ran out on to Plevna Street, before falling and being stabbed at the junction of Manchester Road at around 22:25hrs on Tuesday, 18 May.

The two suspects - who were on a white moped, believed to be a Honda - were seen heading north on Manchester Road.

Officers were flagged down by a member of the public. Another gave first aid at the scene, before the police took over. The teenager was taken to a local hospital for treatment. His condition is not life-threatening.

Detective Constable Kate Osborne, of Central East BCU, based at Stoke Newington Police Station, said: “The driver was wearing a black helmet, black jacket, light grey tracksuit trousers, and distinctive black and white footwear. The passenger was in all dark clothing with a black helmet.
