Police have released horrifying CCTV of the moment a teenage boy was repeatedly stabbed in a busy Newham street.
The 17-year-old was set upon as he walked in Green Street at about 4pm on 8 May.
Shoppers can be seen looking on in horror as the youngster tries to flee from the knife-wielding man - but struggles to get away.
The terrifying incident left the young victim with a number of injuries including a punctured lung.
He spent a number of days in an east London hospital before later being discharged, police said.
Officers investigating the incident explained that the motive for the attack was unknown and nothing was stolen.
Anyone who recognises the male shown in the CCTV should call detectives at Newham CID via 101.
