Police appeal after teenagers stabbed in Forest Gate

Police are appealing for witnesses after two teenagers were stabbed several times in Forest Gate.

Officers were called to Clinton Road to reports that two 17-year-olds were attacked in Clinton Road between 2.30pm and 3pm on Saturday, February 25.

It is believed that a vehicle carrying three or four men pulled up next to the victims, before three men got out and approached them.

One of the suspects asked the victims where they were from, and when they answered, the suspects stabbed them in the thigh, abdomen and back.

London Ambulance Service attended and took the victims to an east London hospital. They have since been discharged.

The assailants drove away from the scene in a silver Honda Civic and headed towards Dames Road.

They are described as three or four males wearing black clothing, black gloves and wearing balaclavas.
