The hunt is on to find two robbers who stabbed a Spanish student in Willesden in the early hours of yesterday morning.

The 30-year-old victim was viciously attacked after trying to fight off the pair who attempted to steal his backpack outside Brondesbury Court in Willesden Lane, at around 12.35am.

He was rushed to hospital with serious injuries but his condition has improved and is described as stable and non life-threatening.

The suspects are black and age between 18 and 20.
