Detective Inspector Spencer Thomas said: “We have released footage of a person we are keen to trace. The footage was captured in Kirkdale SE26 just before the incident.
“A young man was stabbed – and seriously injured – in broad daylight at a bus stop. I would urge anyone who witnessed this assault to contact us.
“I would also ask that anyone who was driving in the vicinity and has a dash cam to check the footage to see whether they captured something that could help our investigation. Any piece of information, whether you think it might be insignificant or not, could be vital.”
