Officers from the Met’s North Area Command Unit are appealing for witnesses and information after a stabbing in Wood Green.
Police were called to Salisbury Road, N22 at 22:41hrs on Thursday, 7 February to reports of a fight.
Officers attended and discovered two males - aged 16 and 28 years old - suffering from stab wounds. Both males were taken to north London hospitals by the London Ambulance Service where they continue treatment. Both are in a stable condition and their injuries are not life-threatening.
Enquiries have established that the victims were attacked by five males who were armed with knives. The suspects were in a silver coloured Vauxhall Corsa.
Police would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the attack or has information concerning the identity of the suspects.
Detective Inspector Stephen Masterson, said: “This was an appallingly violent attack by a group of armed men intent on causing serious injury.
“Had it not been for the fast actions of the first officers on scene it is likely that this would have been a murder investigation.
“I urge anyone who saw a silver Vauxhall Corsa in the Salisbury Road area on Thursday, 7 February or any suspicious activity to call police without delay.
“The effects of knife crime run far beyond injuries to the victims, the impact on the community and on feelings of personal safety can be devastating. It is vital that we identify and apprehend dangerous individuals quickly and place them before the courts.
“If you have information please don’t hesitate, make the call and leave the rest to us.”
Anyone with information can contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 quoting CAD 8430/07Feb19.
