28 April, 2017 — By Koos Couvée

A MAN in his twenties was injured in a stabbing in Canonbury on Sunday night.

Police were called just before 10pm to reports of an injured man in Essex Road, near the junction with New North Road. He was taken to an east London hospital. His injuries are described as not life-threatening.

There have been no arrests and enquiries ­continue.

Any witnesses or anyone with any information is urged to call police at the Central North Command Unit via 101, or by tweeting @MetCC. To give information anonymously call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or visit

It comes after a man was left with “life-changing” injuries after he was stabbed outside a doctor’s surgery in Canonbury last Friday morning. ­Elizabeth Avenue Group Practice was taped off for several hours as police and ambulance crews attended the scene.

Roy McKenna, 32, of Hornsey Rise, Upper Holloway, was charged on Saturday with grievous bodily harm and possession of a knife in relation to the second incident.

The two stabbings are not believed to be linked.
