A man was stabbed in a suspected ‘neo-Nazi’ attack when Polish extremists stormed a public party in a park packed with families. Violence broke out at a community event when thugs – thought to be members of a nationalist group – began hurling rocks, flares and glass.
Around 150 are thought to have been at the music festival in Markfield Park in Tottenham. A 24-year-old man was taken to hospital after being stabbed, and was later released.
In a statement, The Met Police said: “There was a licensed community event in Marksfield Park, Tottenham. Unknown to the locals, police, a small, extreme nationalist Polish group, Zjednoczeni Emigranci had also planned an event nearby.
“Taking the peaceful community event by surprise, Z.E. launched an unprovoked attack, hurling verbal abuse at locals, intimidating the children and families that were present, before turning to physical violence.”
