Police are appealing for information after a man was hit in the face with an unknown weapon in a busy Tottenham park.

The 30-year-old victim was taken to North Middlesex Hospital, in Sterling Way, Enfield, with a cut to his face requiring stitches, after the incident on March 30.

Officers were called to the scene in Hartington Park, Stirling Road, at 5.50pm and found the man being attended to by members of the public.

The victim, who has since been discharged from hospital, did not see the weapon used in the attack.

Investigating officer DC Matt Lever, of Haringey CID, said: “This appears to have been an unprovoked assault in which the suspect used a blade or other sharp object to inflict a large cut to the victim’s face that required stitches. While he has been discharged from hospital, his injuries will require ongoing treatment.

“Hartington Park was busy at the time of the incident and we believe there were people there that may have seen something but have not yet contacted us. Please, if you do have any information, I urge you to call.”

No arrests have been made but the suspect is described as a male, aged about 20, of mixed race.

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Lever on 020 8345 0712, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
