KNIFE RAMPAGE IN LONDON: 1 WOMAN DEAD, Several Injured in Terrorist Attack
August 4, 2016
A woman in her 60s has died and five other people have been injured after a man with “significant mental health issues” allegedly “went on the rampage” with a knife in a possible terror-related attack in central London.
Police confirmed a 19-year-old man was arrested after being Tasered in connection with a mass stabbing in front of horrified onlookers in Russell Square at about 10.30pm last night. He remains in hospital under armed guard.
Fears that the knifeman operated with an accomplice were raised in the early hours as the Met refused to rule out further suspects. One witness said he saw “a man flee on a motorbike,” while another described hearing a victim “screaming and covered in blood.” Photos show what appear to be a bladed weapon abandoned at the scene.
