Brent police are searching for two men in after a Harlesden kebab shop owner was stabbed in the arm and threatened with a handgun in May.

The wanted men were involved in two incidents, one on Friday May 11 and another two days later, at Master Kebab and Pizza in Park Parade, Harlesden.

One of the suspects attacked the owner of the kebab shop with a knife after the other was ejected from the premises. The owner received three wounds to his arm before both suspects fled the scene – only to return later that evening and assault another staff member.

Then on Sunday May 13, the man who had been kicked out of the shop threatened a member of staff with a black handgun before stabbing him in the arm.

Both suspects are described as of Middle Eastern appearance. The first is thought to be in his 30s with a short black beard, wearing a black jacket, blue shirt, large dark rimmed glasses and a blue baseball cap. The second has dark hair, dark zipped coat, blue jeans and black trainers.

Detective Constable Parminder Ahluwalia from Brent CID called on anyone who recognised the men to get in touch with police.

Anyone with information or who recognises these men should contact 101 quoting CAD 9160/11May18 or tweet @MetCC. You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
