Teenager In Hospital After Knife Attack

We are appealing for witnesses and information following a serious assault in Tottenham, involving knives and an axe that has left a teenager with serious injuries.

Officers were called at 17:30 hrs on Friday 24 May to reports of a teenage boy suffering from stab wounds in Braemar Road, Tottenham. He was taken by air ambulance to an East London hospital in a critical condition. He still remains in hospital with what have been described as life changing injuries to his leg.

The victim, who is 14 years old, was walking along Braemar Road with two other boys also aged 14, when they were approached by a group of between 3-4 males all aged between 18-25 years old.

The suspects were all seen to get out of a dark coloured mini cooper, which had pulled up a short distance away.

The males stabbed the victim several times and punched the other two boys, who did not require hospital treatment.

Following the assault the suspects got back into their car and drove off in the direction of West Green Road and was seen in Lawrence Road N15.

Officers are keeping an open mind re motive at this early stage.

There have been no arrests

Acting Detective Sergeant Alex Peddie of Tottenham CID said

"This appears to be a totally unprovoked attack by grown men, on a young boy who might never fully recover from the injuries he sustained to his leg. The level of violence meted out was horrific. If you saw what happened or have any information that could assist the investigation I would urge you to call us"

Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to call Tottenham CID on 020 8345 0831 or to remain anonymous Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
