A PEDESTRIAN was stabbed in the stomach after leaving a snooker club.

The 29-year-old man was leaving Belmont Snooker Club with two friends on Northumberland Way, Northumberland Heath, last Saturday at around 2.10am. Police believe that at least four people got out of a small, dark car and started fighting with the three pedestrians when one of them stabbed him in the stomach and then drove off.

The victim's friends, both from Erith, aged 31 and 32, had facial injuries and bruising.

Investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Graham Scott said: "This incident could have been far worse and the main victim was lucky not to have lost his life following the attack."

The stabbing victim remains in hospital and underwent major surgery on Monday to repair damage to an internal organ.

The suspects are all white men and in their early 20s.
