Police are appealing for information after a man was stabbed in the face in Chadwell Heath.

A 21-year-old man suffered a knife wound to his face on Sunday, March 11 in Station Road.

He was found with a kitchen knife in his left eye.

Officers from the East Area Command Unit are investigating.

A police spokesman said: “The injured man was taken by the London Ambulance Service to an East London hospital where his condition is serious.

There have been no arrests at this time.

“[The man] has had an x-ray showing a 10cm blade lodged in his eye,” another police spokeswoman added.

“His condition is described as likely to be non-life threatening, however this will be confirmed post-surgey.”
