Four men were injured – one critically – in separate stabbings in London in the early hours today.

In a third incident two men are recovering after being sprayed in the face with ammonia in an attempted robbery late last night.  

Detectives are hunting two armed robbers who stabbed a man after he stopped them stealing his moped in Notting Hill at around 2.30am. 

The 27-year-old victim was taken to hospital with stab injuries to his arm and back after the incident in Westbourne Park Road.

The man was standing next to his moped when two men walked up and tried to steal his bike. They ran off after stabbing him.

One of the suspects is described as black and wearing a black full-face helmet and a fluorescent yellow jacket.

In an earlier attack police were called to a street in Southgate after reports of a man being stabbed.

A 23-year-old was taken to hospital shortly at around where his condition is described as critical.

Around 30 minutes later, police were alerted to two men in their 20s who had attended a north London hospital, both suffering knife injuries. Neither were seriously hurt.

In a third incident in Forest Gate two men approached the driver of a car in Boleyn Road at 11.30pm last night and demanded the car keys. 

Police say ammonia was squirted at both the driver and the male passenger.

The driver did not hand over the keys and he was assaulted. Both victims were taken to hospital. Their injuries are not said to be serious.

Both suspects, who were wearing balaclavas, fled empty handed.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
