A victim of a random stabbing has asked for the public’s help to find a gang of men wearing masks who attacked him.
Mohammad Rahman, known as Wahidur, was stabbed in the back as he visited the rubbish bin area near his sister’s house in Bingley Road, Canning Town, at 12.45am on July 26.
Three knife-wielding men got out of a black car containing two others and chased the 28-year-old 100 yards until he was caught and stabbed by one of them.
Muhibul Hoque, Wahidur’s brother, said: “He screamed ‘Help me, help me’ and my sister came out and they ran off.”
The 37-year-old added: “He cannot believe it, my brother is humble, quiet and peaceful.”
A neighbour raised the alarm with the police at 12.57am and Wahidur was taken to hospital by paramedics where he received nine stitches.
He is currently recovering at home but the family has been left shaken by what happened.
“I was very emotional and sad,” said Muhibul. “It is not a good feeling at the moment living in London.”
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the incident was being treated as GBH and detectives were investigating.
No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.
Anyone with information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
