Two men have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder


A man was left in hospital after being stabbed whilst jogging through Finsbury Park.

The 39-year-old was left with a knife wounds to the stomach after the attack by two youths on push bikes outside the Finsbury Park Cafe, on Endymion Road, on Saturday at about 5.45pm.

Children and families, enjoying the sunshine in the park, looked on in shock as police taped off the crime scene.

The victim’s injuries are not life threatening.

Police say the stabbing followed an argument between the youths and the man - they do not believe it is gang related.

Anyone with any information can call police on 1010 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
