Detectives are appealing for witnesses after a teenager was stabbed in Dagenham last night.

Police were called at 6.40pm yesterday evening, after the 17-year-old boy was stabbed at a takeaway in Goresbrook Road.

The teen was taken by ambulance to an east London hospital where his condition is serious but stable.

At this stage, officers believe the victim was stabbed by one of a group of three youths, all of whom made off on foot.

The boy who carried out the attack is described as a black male, about 15-years-old with his hair in cornrows. He was wearing a grey hoodie and a gold chain with a medallion featuring a Versace Medusa’s head symbol.

The second suspect was a black male, aged about 15 years, with a noticeably short neck and afro-style hair.

The third suspect is a tall, light-skinned black male, who was wearing a hoodie. He is possibly slightly older than the other two suspects.

At this stage, officers are retaining an open mind as to any motive. Nothing was stolen during the incident.

Anyone with information that may assist the investigation is asked to call Barking and Dagenham CID on 101 or, to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
