Terrifying moment man chased by mob and stabbed in Hackney street

This is the terrifying moment a man was chased by a mob and stabbed in a vicious street attack in Hackney.

The dramatic CCTV footage shows a man swinging a knife around wildly as the victim, who is in his mid-twenties, flees the gang.

More than 10 people are seen running behind the attackers, kicking and shoving each other as the victim runs for his life.

One of the men police want to speak to is seen running into the brawl, knifing the fleeing victim with a vicious downward strike.

The end of the footage, released by police, shows the two suspects speaking with two women whose faces are blurred. One of the suspects then hugs a woman.

Police have today stepped up the hunt to find the two men, following the attack on Sunday, May 1.

The victim ran into two on-patrol police officers by chance after being chased down the street by the two suspects.

Detectives today released video of the attack, on Gillett Street at around 5.10am, and photos of the two men they want to speak to.

The first suspect is a black man of average build with his hair tied back on top of his head.. He was wearing a grey hooded top with a yellow ‘A&Fitch’ logo on the front, jeans and dark shoes.

The other suspect is described by police as a bald black man of large build and wearing a light hooded top with a print on the front, dark coloured trousers and light shoes.

Detectives from the Met Police’s specialist gang violence unit – Trident and Area Crime Command – are investigating the assault.

They want to hear from anyone who might recognise the men or who saw the incident.

Anyone with any information is asked to please contact police via 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
