The 29-year-old victim was reportedly having a cigarette in Green Bank when he was approached by a bike-riding trio.

Without warning, they lunged at him, leaving him with a deep cut to his leg that damaged his femoral artery.

Paramedics rushed him to an east London hospital, where he remains.

Detectives investigating the attack today released CCTV stills showing three cyclists with whom officers wish to speak.

Also shown is a man walking down Green Park pulling a wheeled bag behind him, a possible witness who “may hold vital information” needed to trace the suspects, said investigation lead Det Con Ian Arrowsmith.

Enquiries into the attack, which took place at about 10.30pm on Saturday, April 28, continue with no arrests made.
