A man suffered a terrifying attack when his car window was smashed by a knifeman outside a nursery in the Isle of Dogs.

The bizarre assault took place in Cuba Street on July 5 at 9pm.

The driver and his passenger, both 20-year-old men, were sat in their parked car next to a building site and the Bright Horizons Heron Quays day nursery when three men on bikes rode up.

One smashed the car window and lunged through it wielding a large knife, which can clearly been seen in a video that was uploaded on to social media webiste Twitter.

The masked thug tried to stab the passenger, and cut his hand and arm.

The other occupant scratched his arm as he fled the car.

Their injuries are not life-threatening or life-changing.

Police have made no arrests, and enquiries continue.
