Shocking CCTV footage shows the moment a man was set upon by a gang of thugs in Gillett Square, Dalston – minutes before he was stabbed.

Two of the men seen in the video are wanted by the Met’s gang squad in connection with the attack, which took place in the early hours of Sunday May 1.

Officers had been patrolling the area when the victim ran into them after being chased by two men. He told officers he had been stabbed.

Scotland Yard are now asking anyone who knows the men pictured, or has any information about the stabbing, to come forward.

The first man police want to speak to is described as a black, of average build with his hair tied back on top of his head. He was wearing a grey hooded top with a yellow “A&Fitch” logo on the front, jeans and dark shoes.

The second man is described as a bald black man of large build. He was wearing a light hooded top with a print on the front, dark coloured trousers and light shoes.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police via 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
