Detectives from Brent have released CCTV images of two men they would like to speak to in connection with two connected assaults at a kebab restaurant in Harlesden in May.
The first incident happened at around 23:30hrs on Friday, 11 May at the Master Kebab and Pizza in Park Parade, Harlesden.
Following an altercation inside the restaurant, a man [suspect one] was escorted from the premises by staff. Once outside, he was joined by a second man [suspect two] who attacked the owner of the restaurant with knives. He received three slash wounds to his arm as he attempted to defend himself. Both suspects fled the scene but returned moments later and assaulted another staff member.
CCTV inside the shop caught the suspect one at the counter.
According to police, At 21:30hrs on Sunday, 13 May at the same shop, suspect one returned and waited outside the rear of the shop until a staff member opened the door. He threatened the male victim with a black handgun and, once inside, stabbed him in the arm with a knife. Other staff chased the suspect out the restaurant. He was last seen running along Harlesden Gardens.
London Ambulance Service attended and took the victim to a west London hospital – he was discharged following treatment.
Suspect one is described as a man of Middle Eastern appearance, aged in his 30s with a short black beard, wearing a black jacket, blue shirt, large dark rimmed glasses and a blue baseball cap. He was seen on the Sunday without his glasses and baseball hat.

My view: Stop and search saves lives, police should continue with it, and critics of it are simply playing the race card. It's sad that gangs kill each other and innocent people over post code.
