A MAN was stabbed in the chest as he waited for a taxi on New Year's Day.

The 26-year-old victim and his cousin were standing outside the Corner Shop in Craven Park Road, Harlesden at the junction with St Thomas Road, at around 4.05am on January 1 waiting for a cab.

The victim's cousin then went to look for the cab and while gone, the victim was approached by a man and stabbed him in the lower chest.

The knife-wielding thug then walked off towards St Thomas Road, followed by a woman and two other men.

The victim was taken to hospital where he is currently in a stable condition.

The first suspect is described as a black man, 18 to 25 years old, wearing a black coat and black trousers.

The woman is described as white wearing dark skinny jeans, blue half sleeved cardigan with white top of medium build with her hair tied up with a gold head band.

The other two men are described as black, 5ft 9ins tall, one wearing a black coat, white trainers and a green hat.
