He suffered significant blood loss, but survived the vicious, unprovoked attack, carried out late on Tuesday night, with non-life-threatening injuries, police said - writes itv.com.
It is the latest in a string of stabbings involving young men, coming days after four people, including two teenagers, were stabbed to death in unrelated attacks across the city in the space of 24 hours.
The 20-year-old was chased by a group of teenagers, then ambushed and repeatedly stabbed as he knocked on a door of a residential street in Harrow, northwest London, for help.
The Metropolitan Police described the suspects as a group of black males in their late teens, who were wearing dark clothing, and appealed for witnesses to the attack in Eastway Crescent to come forward.
This was a vicious unprovoked attack on a young male who had been enjoying an evening with friends when he was chased, ambushed and repeatedly stabbed by a group of males for an unknown reason. We have already spoken to lots of people in the area about the incident, but I would appeal to anyone who witnessed the attack and hasn't spoken to us about it yet to come forward. Any detail, no matter how insignificant it may seem, will help us to identify those responsible and bring them to justice.
