A quick-thinking police officer has saved a man who was stabbed in Stoke Newington from further injury after he intervened in the incident.
The plain clothes Detective Sergeant saw the incident in Rectory Road at about 2:20pm today as he was on his way to Stoke Newington Police Station.
He intervened, identifying himself as police and separating the suspects from the victim to stop further injury.
Two men were also arrested on the scene and taken to an east London police station.
Colleagues and the London Ambulance Service responded to the officer’s call for assistance.
The victim, aged in his late 20s was taken to an east London hospital and his injuries are not thought to be life threatening.
Insp Brigid Beehag-Fisher, of Hackney police, said: “This incident is still under investigation but there is no doubt it would have been far more serious without the intervention and bravery of this police officer.”
