Officers investigating a stabbing on Valentine’s Day have released an image of a man they want to identify.
The Met was called at 5.13am on Tuesday February 14, after a man was found with a stab wound in Green Street, Newham, near Upton Park Tube station.
Police and London Ambulance Service paramedics found the victim, a 36-year-old man, suffering a stab wound to the chest.
He was taken to hospital, where his condition was assessed as not life threatening.
There have been no arrests and enquiries are ongoing.
Detectives investigating the case believe the stabbing occurred in Queen’s Market at around 5.10am.
They have published an image of a man they wish to identity in relation to the case.
Other people were in the area at the time of the incident, officers believe.
They had left by the time police arrived, and they have not come forward.
DC Jamie Thorn, the investigating officer, said: "If anyone recognises the man in this image then please call us immediately.
“We know there were some other people in and around the Queen’s Market area, but none were present on police arrival, nor have they come forward. I would ask them, or anyone with information about this incident, to get in contact."
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 101 or tweet @MetCC quoting CAD 965/14Feb.
