Detectives have released CCTV footage of two men they would like to speak to in connection with a sickening knife attack.
The 39-year-old victim was attacked at around midnight on Friday October 14 as he sat on a bench outside the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Western Gateway, just at stone’s throw from the Emirates Air Line.
Police say he had an altercation with another man after he was accused of looking at his girlfriend - then he was stabbed in the stomach with a black-handled knife.
The attacker and two friends made off towards Silvertown Way.
The victim was taken to an east London hopital and has since been discharged.
