Witnesses to a stabbing in Piccadilly are being asked to assist police with their enquiries.
A 23-year-old man was left needing hospital treatment to a belly wound following the attack on the night of March 8.
The incident happened at 11.10pm at the London Pavilion, between Ripley’s Believe it or Not and nightclub The Piccadilly Institute, following a row.
Territorial Support Group officers dealing with an unrelated stop nearby heard members of the public shouting that a fight had broken out.
Officers attended and found the victim suffering a stab wound to the abdomen.
Police gave first aid and called the London Ambulance Service, and the victim was taken to a central London hospital for treatment. He has now been discharged.
At this stage it is believed there was an argument between the suspect and victim, which led to the stabbing.
The victim ran into the Piccadilly Institute, pursued by the suspect who was stopped by door staff and then made off.
The suspect returned moments later and was pointed out to police by members of the public.
A 32-year-old man was arrested nearby and subsequently charged.
Investigating officer DC Joanna Bellett, of Westminster’s Serious Crime Unit, said: “A man has been charged but we are still keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have information about what happened.
“This was an extremely frightening incident for the victim. There would have been a lot of people in and around the area at the time and we would urge them to contact us.”
Anyone with information can contact police on 0207 321 8260 or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
The appeal comes amid a spate of fatal stabbings in west London.
