Police are hunting two suspects after a 15-year-old boy was chased and stabbed on the Isle of Dogs.

The Met says the teenager was chased through St John’s Park and ran out on to Plevna Street, before falling and being stabbed at the junction of Manchester Road about 10.25pm on Tuesday, May 18.

Two suspects - who were on a white moped, believed to be a Honda - were seen heading north in Manchester Road.

Police were flagged down by a member of the public while another gave first aid, before the officers took over.

The teenager was taken to hospital for treatment and his condition is not life-threatening.

Police are appealing for anyone who saw what happened or who has any information to come forward.

Detective Constable Kate Osborne, of Central East BCU, based at Stoke Newington Police Station, said: “The driver was wearing a black helmet, black jacket, light grey tracksuit trousers, and distinctive black and white footwear.
