The Met Police have released detailed descriptions of the three suspects shown in CCTV footage attacking Alan Cartwright and his friends in Islington on Friday night.
The fifteen-year-old was stabbed in the chest while riding his bike on the Caledonian Road.
All three male suspects are described as young, slim or medium build.
- ‘Suspect one’ is believed to be white, wearing a grey or dark coloured hooded top and dark bottoms which could have had a key chain hanging from the rear pocket.
- ‘Suspect two’ is thought to be black, wearing a black sleeveless jacket with a black hooded top underneath. He was also wearing a shoulder bag across his body.
- ‘Suspect three’, whose ethnicity is unknown, wore a three-quarter length coat with a hood, a dark top with a multi-coloured motif on the chest, lighter coloured bottoms and dark shoes.
Police are looking for the two bicycles stolen from Alan’s friends:
- The first is a red mountain bike branded ‘Specialized Hard Rock.’
- The second is a black and red ‘Specialized Vita’ pedal cycle, with the word ‘Specialized’ written in white.
