Man has face slashed by vicious thug

A man suffered a deep cut and was left needing stitches after being slashed across the face by attackers on bikes.

The man, 21, was standing on the street in Northolt, north west London, when a group of men riding bicycles came towards him and one of them cut him across the left side of his face with a large knife.

He was rushed to hospital with a deep cut as his attackers rode off.

Emergency services were called to the address in Shadwell Drive shortly before 6.30 in the evening on Sunday May 1.

The assault, which Scotland Yard has described as "serious", was captured on CCTV and police are keen to hear from anyone who might recognise the subject.

He is described as a black man wearing blue jeans, a blue jumper and a black jacket.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
