A father and son were seriously injured after a double stabbing in Finsbury Park which “could easily have been fatal”.
Police have released images of two men they want to speak to in connection with the stabbings on Christmas Eve at 7.50pm.
The 65-year-old dad and 37-year-old son were seriously hurt and needed hospital treatment but have since been discharged.
They were both in a grey panel van when they became involved in an altercation with the driver and passenger of a black Smart car in Green Lanes, near Manor House Tube station.
The row progressed into Hermitage Road before it ended up in Vale Grove.
Scotland Yard said the driver and passenger of the black Smart car were both black males.
One man has been named as Kyroe Oscar Howsen, 24, from Haringey.
A CCTV image of another man wanted by police has also been released.
Detective Constable Leon Ure, from the CID on Haringey borough, said: “This was a very violent attack and the injuries were serious and could easily have been fatal.
“The elder victim had just arrived in the country to spend Christmas with his family; instead he and his son had to be rushed to hospital.
“We urgently want to find the persons responsible and I would urge the public to contact police if they have any information.”
Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information is asked to contact police on 101, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or at crimestoppers-uk.org.
