A Dagenham woman was stabbed and struck on the head in an attempted robbery this morning.

Police were called to Urswick Road just before 5am after a report of an assault on a female.

An attending ambulance crew took a 45-year-old woman to hospital, where she was found to be suffering from a head injury and small stab wound.

Her injuries are “not life threatening,” said police, who hope to interview her about the disturbance later today.

Enquiries continue with no arrests made.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or anonymously call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
