Do you know this person?
Detectives would like to speak to him after a boy was stabbed during a robbery near Forest Gate station.
Police were called about 6pm on Christmas Eve last month to reports of a robbery and assault in Woodgrange Road, where a 16-year-old boy was found with a stab injury to his arm.
He was taken to hospital for treatment and has since been discharged.
The victim was reportedly walking towards Forest Gate railway station when he was approached by two males.

Detective Constable Tanner of the north east basic command unit said: “I’m asking the public to take a good look at the male in this image and if they recognise him to get in touch with police.”
