A man who is wanted for attempted murder in Norwich is still being hunted by police nearly a decade later.

Salah Hadi, also known as Salam Hadi Ali, is wanted in connection with an attack which happened on April 18, 2014.

A man, who was in his early 30s at the time, was attacked in Riverside Road and suffered stab wounds to his face and neck.

An appeal on BBC Crimewatch in 2014 sparked new leads after an image of Hadi was seen by millions of TV viewers - but came to no avail.

Two men have been charged with offences in relation to the incident.

Kamal Hajizada, 25, of no fixed address, and Luqman Ali, 22, of York Road, Great Yarmouth, were both convicted of wounding with intent, following a trial at Norwich Crown Court in 2014.

During the trial Anthony Abell, prosecuting, described the attack as 'brief but violent'.

He said that Hadi and Hajizada actually had knives in their hand, while Ali was an 'onlooker' who drove the other two men to and from the scene.

The victim said all three men left the scene after the attack and he managed to get back to the hostel where he got help and was treated by paramedics and then taken to hospital.

Hadi, who is now in his early 40s, has links to Ipswich and the West Midlands.

Detective Constable Phil Paddon said: "We can confirm that Hadi is still wanted. We continue to carry out enquiries in the Kurdish community and with other police forces in order to trace Salah Hadi.

"We’re keen to hear from anyone who may have seen him recently or knows of his current whereabouts."

Salah Hadi should not be approached and anyone with information about his whereabouts should contact Norfolk Police immediately on 101.
