Police are urging witnesses to a daylight stabbing at a Canary Wharf DLR station to come forward as they continue to investigate the attack.

On Tuesday, August 3 at around 1.50pm, two men approached the male victim at West India Quay DLR station in East London.

British Transport Police spokesperson said that they “engaged in a brief conversation” before one of the men pulled out a flick knife, demanding the victim’s belongings. He then punched the victim in the head and stabbed him in his upper arm.

The men then left the DLR station.

The victim was treated for his injuries in hospital, but thankfully they were not life-threatening or life-changing.
