A 17-year-old Romford boy was stabbed three times in a horrific unprovoked attack.

The youth initially thought he had been punched in the stomach and arm but realised he was bleeding, following the attack in Whalebone Lane North, Dagenham.

The victim, who was walking with a friend, was set upon by two white hooded youths, both aged around 17, just after 7.30pm on Monday February 28.

He was taken by ambulance to the Royal London Hospital, in east London, for treatment and is now recuperating at home.

A police spokesman said: “Due to the unprovoked and violent nature of this attack, police would like to hear from anyone who either witnessed this incident or has information concerning the identity of the suspects.”
