Police are appealing for information after a man was stabbed in a knife fight on board a train service as it approached Finsbury Park.

It happened on the Cambridge to King’s Cross service on February 22.

Four people had boarded the 11.22pm service from Cambridge. As the train approached Finsbury Park at about 12.41am, they got into an altercation with another man. Knives were drawn from both parties.

The lone passenger ended up with multiple stab wounds. The man was treated for his injuries, which were not life threatening.

A 19-year-old man from Camden has been arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon and possession of a Class B drug.

Officers today released images of four people they wish to speak to in connection with the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quoting “17” of February 22, 2018.
