Man ‘stabbed in London by gang of 20 men on mopeds’

By Georgia Diebelius

A young man was rushed to hospital after a gang of 20 youths allegedly stabbed him with a machete in central London.

Police and paramedics rushed to the scene at around 8pm yesterday following reports of a knifing.

It is claimed that the gang pulled up to the area on mopeds before launching the attack.

The incident, which took place in Russell Square, follows a fatal stabbing on the same site in 2016.

Officers confirmed last night that the stabbing was not linked to terrorism.

Five police cars, an ambulance and an air ambulance raced to the scene and rushed the victim, who is in his 20s, to hospital.

Police caught and arrested one suspect.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: ‘Police were called at approximately 7.45pm to reports of a number of people on mopeds involved in a disturbance in Brunswick Centre.

‘Officers, London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance attended and found a man, believed aged in his 20s, suffering a stab wound.

‘He was taken to a central London hospital for treatment – condition awaits.

‘One male was arrested at the scene on suspicion of GBH. Enquires continue to trace any other people involved.

‘Officers from the Central North Command Unit investigate. It is not terror related.’

You may say it’s not terror related, but ISIS will claim responsibility very soon
