A 24-year-old man was stabbed in an attempted shop robbery as he manned his family-owned Crouch End shop with his wife yesterday.
Police were called to the Crouch End Hill Food and Wine shop.
Witnesses described blood on the floor following the attack at 5pm.
The university-educated shopkeeper, who also works teaching English as a foreign language, suffered stab injuries and was driven to a central London hospital by his wife last night.
His family has owned the Crouch End business for two years.
