It appears the suspects have attempted to rob the victim and then after a brief altercation, the victim has then been stabbed twice.
The description of one of the suspects is quite distinctive and I have no doubt that someone will know or recognise who this is.
I would urge anyone with information to come forward.
This is the third stabbing involving young people in Croydon over the past couple of weeks and whilst they are all unrelated, it will understandably cause concern within the community.
Overall, knife crime and youth violence in Croydon is on the decrease, but we are not complacent and are working hard to further reduce these.
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101.
