Officers attended, along with London Ambulance Service, and found a 31-year-old man suffering from multiple stab wounds.

He was taken to an east London hospital where he continues to receive treatment for his injuries.

The suspects – described as four young men dressed in dark clothing – fled the scene in a silver VW Golf car before police arrived. Officers from the Met’s North East Gangs Unit are working to trace any information relating to the vehicle captured on CCTV.

Detective Constable Ramandeep Gahir who leads the investigation said: “This was a brutal attack which inflicted a devastating injury on the victim. We are committed to ensuring those responsible are suitably brought to justice for their actions.

“We are seeking the public’s help to identify the vehicle captured on CCTV – do you recognise this silver Volkswagen Golf? Were you in the area on that evening in October and remember seeing something suspicious? If so, please get in contact.”

Anyone who can help police is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC, quoting CAD316/24th Oct20. You can also provide information anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
