Police appeal for information about four stabbings in Forest Gate

13:00 20 December 2012

More details have emerged about four stabbings in Forest Gate over the past two months.

Newham police are appealing for information about four more violent incidents that have taken place in the E7 area since October.

Officers are appealing for witnesses after a man allegedly forced entry into a home in St George’s Street with a knife at 11.55pm on Oct 5.

He attacked a male who suffered deep cuts to his knee and a female who suffered two lacerations to her hands.

Police were also called to Romford Road on Oct 26 at 2.30am where a man sustained head and stomach injuries after a passerby asking the victim for money then attacked him with an ice pick.

Information is also needed about a man who said his knee was slashed with a knife after another man had shouted abuse at him on Katherine Road at 8.35pm on Nov 6.

Last week, the Recorder wrote about an incident on November 30 where police received reports from the London Ambulance Service that a teenager had been stabbed multiple times all over his body while walking down Shrewsbury Road at around 11pm on Nov 30.

The pair had been chased by ten males who emerged from a silver Vauxhall Astra or Vectra type vehicle and another dark-coloured car.

People are urged to contact Newham CID in the strictest confidence on 0207 275 5881.

Alternatively, if you wish to remain anonymous, please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
