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.”
