Police are appealing for witnesses following the stabbing of an 18 year-old man through an open taxi window.
Police were called on October 25 at around 03.15am to the back of Circuit nightclub, on North Street, Romford, following a report of an assault.
On arrival, they found an 18-year-old man lying on the floor with multiple stab wounds along his torso and leg and had been given first aid by the club’s security staff.
The teenager had been sitting in a stationary taxi, when a man stabbed him several times through the open taxi window.
He was taken by London Ambulance Service to an east London hospital where he received treatment for his wounds and was later discharged.
The same day, a 28 year-old man was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and has been bailed to an east London police station to a date in December.
Det Con Robert Taylor of Havering CID, is urging any witnesses or anyone with information, who haven’t yet spoken to the police, to come forward.
