Detectives have released images of a male they wish to speak to
Officers are now releasing images of a male they wish to speak to in connection with the incident that occurred on Friday, 24 January.
A 19-year-old man and his mother were outside the station on Dalston Lane when they were approached by an unknown man.
The suspect made a comment to the victim and a fight ensued.
During the altercation, the suspect hit the victim with his electric scooter before pulling out a knife and attempting to stab him.
The knife went through the victim’s clothing but did not penetrate his skin. His mother also suffered bruising to her face as she attempted to intervene.
The suspect then fled the scene on his scooter.
Detective Inspector Sean Drislane, from Central East CID, said: “The victim in this attack was extremely fortunate to be wearing thick clothing; without it he would undoubtedly have received several stab wounds to his body.
“This incident occurred in broad daylight and it is clear the suspect had no issues with carrying a knife or using it in front of many members of the public.
“These images are of good quality and there will be people out there who recognise this individual. We would urge them to come forward and speak to us.”
