Officers investigating a double stabbing in Haringey last year have released images of two men they would like to speak with in connection with the attack.
Police were called shortly after 04:30hrs on Sunday, 14 June 2020 by London Ambulance Service who reported they were treating two men suffering stab wounds at the junction of High Road and Turnpike Lane, N22.
An investigation was launched immediately – it is believed that the assault was unprovoked and appears to be an isolated incident.
A black car containing two black males had pulled up alongside pedestrians and made derogatory comments toward a woman, making her feel uncomfortable. This led to the victims’ verbally arguing with the two men who were in the car.
The men then got out of the vehicle and attacked both victims, leaving them with serious stab wounds.
One victim also sustained a broken bone around his eye socket which required surgery.
Officers would like to speak to the two men pictured in connection with the incident.
Detective Constable Yuliya Orudzheva from the Met’s North Area Command Unit said: “This was a brutal attack on two men who had never seen their attackers in their life. They were minding their own business and enjoying a night out when they were set upon.
“It’s remarkable, despite their stab wounds, that they escaped life-changing injuries.
“I would urge anyone who recognises those pictured to contact us so we can speak to them about this incident.”
