Police issue CCTV appeal in relation to 2019 Leyton stabbing
Police investigating a "brazen attack" on a 28-year-old male in Leyton, 2019, are appealing for new information.
Officers patrolling the Midland Road area of Leyton in 2019 were alerted to the stabbing of a man in his late 20's, being told that he had sustained serious injuries to his chest, hands and wrists.
The victim was later taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service, and despite the severity of the injuries, he survived the attack.
It is believed that the victim had been walking along Wesley Road when a man described as BAME, and of a stocky build approached him.
The suspect is alleged to have demanded money from the victim, before stabbing him multiple times.
He is then said to have picked up a brown leather bag before walking in the direction of Abbots Park Road.
Almost a year-and-a-half since the attack, police have issued fresh CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to in relation to the attack.
Detective Constable Nicola Cross, of the Met's North East Area CID, said: "This was a brazen attack on a residential street in broad daylight that left a man in hospital with serious injuries.
"I believe that anyone who knows this man pictured will be able to recognise him from the image we’re releasing today.
"If you are able to tell us who he is, or if seeing the footage makes you remember something you saw on that evening in June 2019, I would urge you to come forward."
Anyone who can help police is urged to call 101, tweet @MetCC quoting CAD6504/01JUN19, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
