CCTV from the Mahins Pizza Peri Peri Grill in Newham caught the moment two suspects got into a fight with the 18-year-old victim.

The victim was taken to hospital in east London, but was discharged shortly afterwards.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Phil Fox said: “This is an attack on a man who suffered multiple stab wounds from his ordeal. We are asking for anyone who recognises these two teenagers to come forward and assist us with our investigation.”
