Police were called to a Cranham pub last night after a man was stabbed with what an eyewitness described as “a machete” during a drunken St Patrick’s Day brawl.
Police were called to Cranham Tandoori Indian restaurant, Avon Road, Upminster at around 10.20pm on Thursday March 14 to reports of a male with stab wounds.
The victim had gone to the restaurant following the stabbing and staff there had provided medical assistance.
Three police cars and a police van responded to the call, but when officers got to the restaurant they discovered the victim had left to make his own way to Queen’s Hospital.
Officers met the victim there, where he was treated for cuts to his fingers and head. The injuries were not life threatening.

The victim was stabbed with a bladed article handed to him by a second man.
An eyewitness described how a group of around eight people, believed to be travellers, were thrown out of the pub for fighting before the brawl escalated in the car park outside.
It is then believed the suspect got into a car and drove off.
Any witnesses or anyone with any information can call Havering Police on 101.
