A suspect accused of the near-fatal stabbing of a young man at a petrol station is among Scotland Yard’s 18 most wanted violent fugitives named today.
Ladie Girre, 24, of Hounslow, allegedly knifed the victim in his 20s on the forecourt in Isleworth, police said.
The injured man was then chased inside the shop in Twickenham Road while being continually attacked with a blade in the chest, stomach and abdomen.
At the time, the victim stumbled half a mile up the road to a hospital where his injuries were deemed life-threatening.
Miraculously, he recovered from the stabbing at around 4pm on September 1 last year.
The Met appealed for the public’s help in getting Girre, 15 other men and two women off the streets by releasing their names and mugshots.
One is suspected of an acid attack while several others are wanted for domestic violence, serious assault and robbery.
Detective Superintendent Lee Hill, behind the force’s second Wanted Week of Action, warned the public not to approach the suspects but to dial 999 immediately.
He said: “Violence, drug and other priority crimes such as burglary are of great concern to the communities of London.
“We are committed to tackling them robustly and pursuing those we suspect to be involved in causing harm and attempting to evade justice. Help us to keep London safe.
“Enforcement operations and investigations are in place to locate wanted suspects but the public can help significantly.
“Please get in touch if you know or see any of the individuals featured or you have information that could help locate them.”
Scotland Yard said the individuals are either suspected of being directly involved in crime, breaching bail or probation conditions or not turned up for court.
Det Supt Hill said he wanted to know where they lived, what cars they drove, where they did their shopping, even the pubs or clubs they drink in.
He added: “I know some people are reticent to pass on information such as this.
“We know people worry that they somehow might be identified or that they might unfairly be adversely affecting somebody’s life.
“However, I want to assure you that passing on information through Crimestoppers who are entirely independent of the police, is completely anonymous.
“One phone call could help potentially solve or even prevent a crime from happening.”
Anyone with information is urged to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Or dial 999 if you see the suspects.
