A man from Walthamstow has been arrested in connection with a stabbing on Thursday night. 

A 20-year-old man was attacked in Higham Hill Road, at the junction with Gloucester Road. 

Police have confirmed he suffered a single stab wound to his lower back as he walked from work at around 11pm. 

The man was stabbed just yards from his place of work at the Co-Operative food store in Higham Hil Road. 

Emergency services including London's Air Ambulance (LAA) arrived at the scene and he was taken to an east London hospital as a priority, with a doctor on board from the LAA. 

The wound has stitched and he was discharged from hospital over the weekend.  

Police arrested a 42-year-old man from the Walthamstow area on suspicion of grievous bodily harm the same day.
