A teenager was stabbed in Lambeth last week, police have released CCTV to help identify the suspects.
Police were called to Brixton Road, near Oval tube station, on Monday, February 29 at 5:30pm to reports of an assault — the London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance also attended.
A 17-year-old male was stabbed and taken to a south London hospital — he has since been discharged.
It is believed two male suspects were involved. Both are thought to have carried out another assault on a number of individuals in the Tennessee Chicken Shop, Brixton Road, just prior to this incident.
Police have issued CCTV stills and footage from inside the shop of two males they would like to speak to in connection with the two incidents.
Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone who can assist in identifying the suspects.
Both suspects are black males believed to be in their teens wearing black clothing and dark hooded jackets.
The male that stabbed the victim was wearing grey tracksuit bottoms and around 5ft 11ins tall.
Police are also appealing for those victims in the takeaway shop to come forward and speak to police as soon as possible.
Detective Inspector Ian Kenward of Lambeth CID said: “This was a frenzied attack in which a knife was used to inflict life threatening injuries on a teenage male.
“I have no doubt that the perpetrator intended to cause serious harm to the victim.
