A London woman was assaulted by three other women while on her way to her work this morning.
At least one of the three women carried a knife and struct the victim, Karrien Stevens, while the group was chanting “Allah will get you.”
Per Daily Mail:
Karrien Stevens, who runs Little Diamonds nursery in Hermon Hill, London confirmed that a member of staff, aged in her 30s, was slashed by three women while on her way to work this morning.
The victim was walking down Wanstead High Street in north London when she was set upon by three girls and knifed, according to her boss.
The incident may have been religiously motivated:
It is believed that the victim was stabbed from behind as her attackers chanted ‘Allah [will get you]’, however police are not treating it as a terrorist incident.
Parents of children in the area received emails stating that schools were on ‘lockdown’ after the attack at about 9.30am.
The victim’s boss commented on the frightful experience:
She added: ‘When she got to work we couldn’t believe it and called the police straight away. It’s terrible, I’m absolutely horrified.
‘You don’t expect something like this to happen on your doorstep.’
The Metropolitan Police confirmed that it was called at 9.36am and found the victim with a ‘slash wound’.
They drove the victim around the area to try to find the perpetrators but failed to find them. No arrests have been made.
