The victim was taken to an east London Hospital and was later transferred to another hospital for treatment and remains a patient.

The suspects are described as three black men, aged between 18-20.

Police are asking witnesses or anyone with information to contact Plaistow Police Station on 0207 275 5711 or to remain anonymous, contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
