Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was threatened with a knife and attacked with a baseball bat in Tottenham.

The man, aged 36, was sitting with friends in the seating area of the Lordship recreation ground on Saturday night when the group was approached by a gang of six to ten teenagers, aged between 16 and 18.

One of the youths pulled out a silver knife from his waistband and made a stabbing motion towards the man, who was then hit on the head with a baseball bat by a second youth.

London Ambulance Service were called at 8.30pm and took the injured man to hospital to be treated for a head injury.

A second man, aged 42, was also injured in the attack.

One of the suspects was wearing a dark coloured hat and grey tracksuit at the time.

Anyone with information about the assault is asked to contact Haringey Police on 101 quoting CRIS 2812004/14. To remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
