Stabbed in buttock on way to East Ham home
A street robbery victim was left with a stab wound in his buttocks.
It happened in Heigham Road, East Ham, on March 11 at 8.30pm, minutes after he had left the nearby Tube station.
The 33-year-old was making his way towards Katherine Road when he became aware that there were two men closely behind him.
One then moved in front of the victim, preventing him from walking further, while the other remained behind him.
They demanded money and searched the victim, before a short struggle ensued resulting in him being stabbed in a buttock.
