Two men were stabbed in separate attacks just hours apart in Barking and Dagenham yesterday (Sunday).
Officers called to reports of knife attacks say the incidents are not related.
The men, both in their 50s, were taken to hospital with injuries described as “not life threatening”, according to a Met Police spokesman.
At 12.40pm police were alerted to a man with a “puncture wound to the back” outside Barking station in Station Parade.
Later, officers were called shortly after 3pm to reports of a stabbing near the Roundhouse pub by Porters Avenue and Lodge Avenue, Dagenham.
