Detectives investigating a non-fatal stabbing in a car park are appealing for witnesses to contact them with any information.

Police were called shortly after 13:00hrs on Friday, 30 November to reports of five males attacking a man outside the main car park on Orchard Close, W10.

Officers attended and found the victim, a 25-year-old man, at the bottom of Bevington Road. He had suffered defensive wounds to his hands and chest, consistent with being stabbed.

One witness told police that they had seen five black males attacking the victim. They also reported that the main aggressor was wearing a distinctive light green camouflage puffa-style jacket and dark jeans.

The witness described seeing the main aggressor armed with a machete, and that’s what he had used to attack the victim with.

The victim was taken to a central London hospital where he was treated for his injuries; which have been deemed non-life threatening.

Detective Constable Greg Plant, from Westminster’s Serious Crime Unit, said: “We would like to hear from anyone who has any information on this brazen attack, or knows who may be involved. Sadly there were no CCTV cameras in the area, so we do not know in which direction the suspects left the scene, but I hope that someone reading this will be able to help our investigation.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 101 and quote CAD 3686/30Nov, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or tweet @MetCC.
