A delivery driver was dragged from his moped and stabbed during a “brutal” attack in Manor Park.

The 23-year-old was on his Honda Pes in Ronnie Lane at around 6.30pm on Thursday, April 5 when he was approached by a group of teenagers.

The boys - described as white, around 15 years old and wearing dark clothing - then dragged him from his moped.

He suffered stab injuries to his body and leg, and both his moped and mobile phone were stolen.

The teenagers are thought to have made off along Lawrence Road.

The delivery driver was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries, and has since been discharged.

DC Jon Saddington, from Newham CID, said: “This was a brutal attack which left the victim suffering from severe injuries whilst simply carrying out his day-to-day job.
