A teenager has been stabbed and robbed by two men on a moped in a late-night attack in Fulham .
The victim needed stitches after he was knifed in the shoulder, hip and bottom while walking along Stevenage Road just after 1.30am on Sunday (October 15).
The 18-year-old was also punched several times in the face before the thieves made off with his wallet.
The victim had left an address in Langthorne Street and was in Stevenage Road, just passing the Nuffield Gym and heading towards the direction of Craven Cottage , when a black moped drove past him and circled him.
The two men on the bike got off and demanded the victim’s phone and watch, but he refused to hand it over.
He was then punched three times by the moped’s passenger, while at the same time, the vehicle’s driver took out a small knife and stabbed him.
During this, the suspects took the victim’s wallet, before getting back on the moped and travelling up either Inglethorpe Street or Stevenage Road.
The victim ran back towards Langthorne Street and was taken by ambulance to a west London hospital where he received treatment for injuries described as “not serious”.
It is the latest in an alarming spate of attacks in the west London area over recent days.
On Friday (October 13) evening a man in his 20s was found with stab wounds in West End Road, Ruislip.
The Stevenage Road suspects were described as black, with black open-faced helmets, dark or black jackets and trousers, and in their early 20s. The moped was a dark colour.
Earlier this month a woman was threatened with a knife when she had her bag snatched as she walked through the grounds of Fulham Palace, close to Stevenage Road.
The bag contained a laptop and was taken from the victim by two men as she walked towards Putney Bridge Tube station at around 6.15pm.
PC Ronan McDermott from the Palace Riverside ward urged residents to be “more aware of their surroundings” following the incidents.
