The victim initially thought that he had been punched in the upper arm and twice in the stomach, but quickly realised that he was bleeding.

He was taken by ambulance to the Royal London Hospital and after treatment for stab wounds is now recuperating at home.

Officers describe the suspects as young white men, aged around 17-years-old who had their heads covered.
