Police investigating an attack where a man was stabbed in the eye are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Officers were called at 2.40am on Sunday, October 28 to reports of a stabbing and found a 38-year-old man on Lansbury Road in Nunhead.

He had a stab wound to his left eye, which needed surgery, and a minor head injury, but is now expected to make a full recovery.

The victim is believed to have been chased down the street and attacked after he tried to break up a fight between a man and woman outside a house party.

Detective Constable Sophie Luger-Mawson said: “We know a lot of people were still in the area at the time of this assault and we would encourage anyone who saw anything to come forward.”

The suspect is described as black, in his mid-20s, about 5”8 and wearing a woolly hat over the top of a cap. He was wearing a black tracksuit and carrying a shoulder bag.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting CAD 1480/28OCT or to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers, the charity independent from police, on 0800 555 111.
