A man was stabbed outside Haggerston Overground station on Tuesday night.

The 26-year-old victim ran off and was found at 8.42pm with a slash injury to his arm half a mile up the road in Dalston, when police were called to Sandringham Road at the junction with St Mark’s Rise.

He was taken to an east London hospital. 
His injuries are not believed to be life threatening, according to Scotland Yard.

Two men, both aged 19, were arrested on suspicion of possession of a class B drug with intent to supply.

Lee Street, outside Haggerston station, was taped off by police.

A Met spokesperson said: “He moved and didn’t collapse after he was stabbed, and he told police that’s where it happened.”

Witnesses or anyone with information about the stabbing can call police on 101 quoting CAD 7930/16OCT. Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
