A man is in a “serious” condition after being stabbed in Edmonton.

At around 8.50pm on Wednesday, October 5, a 21-year-old man was stabbed in the stomach in Monmouth Road following what police describe as “a brief altercation with two suspects.”

The victim was taken to hospital, where his condition is described as “serious but stable”.

However, his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Police say both suspects are described as black men aged around 18.

They also want to trace a dark coloured car - believed to be either a people carrier or a black cab - which they believe drove the suspects to the scene.

There have been no arrests.

Detective Chief Inspector Dan Brown said: "Although we are uncertain as to the exact type of vehicle seen before the attack, I need to hear from anyone - possibly a private hire or taxi driver - who took two males to the Monmouth Road area on Wednesday night.

"They may have vital information that will assist the investigation."

Anyone with information should call 101, or to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
