Detectives are appealing for witnesses in connection with a stabbing in Barking.

Police were called to Station Parade, Barking at 17:55hrs on Friday, 1 November following reports of a man seen with a knife.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and found two males with stab injuries.

They were taken to hospital for treatment. Their injuries were not life-threatening.

Two 16-year-old boys were arrested on suspicion of GBH. They have both since been bailed to return on a date in mid-December.

Enquiries into the full circumstances continue. Anyone with information is requested to call police via 101 quoting reference 6608/01Nov.
