POLICE are appealing for witnesses following a knife attack on the managing director of electrical contractor T Clarke.
Barry deFalco, 49, was outside the firm's headquarters in Walworth Road, south London, early last Thursday morning when the attacker - described as white and stocky - approached the doorway and stabbed him.
Mr deFalco, who has worked for T Clarke since 1971, was taken to a south London hospital, where he remained over the weekend.His injuries are not believed to be critical.
The Metropolitan Police said no robbery was involved.
An industry source said: 'There have been a few redundancies at T Clarke lately so it's possible it could have been somebody with a grudge.'
