Detectives are appealing for witnesses to the stabbing of a 17-year-old youth in Stoke Newington this morning (May 11).

The victim  remains in a “serious condition” in an unnamed hospital, according to John Ellul, spokesperson for the British Transport Police (BTP).

BTP were called to Rectory Road station in Stoke Newington at 9.38am following reports of a stabbing. Ellul said:  “Colleagues from Metropolitan Police Service and London Ambulance Service also attended, and a 17-year-old boy with a stab wound was found in a nearby street and taken to hospital.

“No arrests have been made and enquiries into the incident are ongoing.”

The police were called to Darville Road, N16, however it appears that the assault occurred at another location, which is yet to be confirmed.

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference 149 of 11/5/16. Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
