Police release CCTV of Wapping stab suspects

HE WAS STANDING on Green Bank, E1, having a cigarette when he was approached by three men on bicycles. And then he was stabbed. No reason; no warning – just stabbed in the leg.

The incident occurred at approximately 10.30pm on Saturday, 28th April. The victim, 29, was taken to hospital by the London Ambulance Service. It was found that the stab injury had damaged an artery, and the victim has had to endure substantial medical treatment in hospital.

Tower Hamlets police are investigating and they have now released CCTV still which show the three suspects. As well as the three cyclists, there is also a picture of a man walking down Green Bank, pulling a wheeled bag behind him, who may have been a witness to the attack.

The man with the wheeled bag – is he a witness?

Detective Constable Ian Arrowsmith, who is leading the investigation, explained why the images have now been released. “Although these CCTV stills are not great in quality, they may jog someone’s memory about the events of that evening,” he explained. “I am particularly keen to trace the man seen wheeling a bag behind him – he may hold vital information that could help us trace those responsible for this vicious attack.”

Anyone who saw the attack or saw the suspects or witness in the area or who can provide any information about the incident is asked to contact the police via 101, quoting reference CAD 8473/28Apr. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers on 0800-555 111, where you can give information anonymously.
