Officers and London Ambulance Service attended the scene where they found a 15-years-old boy suffering from several stab wounds to his abdomen and torso. He was taken to hospital where he remains in a critical, but stable condition.
Detectives from East Area CID are leading the investigating.
Detective Sergeant Tricia-Gay Crosdale, said: “A 15-year-old boy was attacked in broad daylight in a busy area of Ilford and he still remains in hospital. I’m confident that someone saw something and we need hear from you. This was a violent attack and the people who orchestrated this attack are still in the community.
“We need to know who the people were getting out of a red car which we believe is a Range Rover Evoque. Did you see it around High View Parade on March 23? Do you know who owns this vehicle? Any information could be vital in binging those responsible to justice.”
