Three Police officers stabbed and one other assualted in Kingsbury

The scene near Kingsbury roundabout

I was hoping the perp wasn’t Black, but it turns out he is, although I’m hearing he may be mentally ill, which might explain the nature of the crime

Witnesses are saying he ran into a halal butchers grabbed the knife and attacked officers who were responding to a disturbance. It’s still very sketchy but I’m sure the Met police will release a statement soon.

However, London Ambulance Service released a statement that read:  “We were called at 8.49am today (19 November) to an incident on Kingsbury Road.

We sent two single responders in cars, four ambulance crews and a duty officer to the scene.

Our staff treated 5 patients – all conscious and breathing – and they were taken as priorities to hospital”.

Sky News Martin Brunt, is reporting two of the officers have life threatening injuries, one was apparently stabbed in the stomach.

A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and as you can imagine various roads are blocked off.

Hoping the officers pull through, but what’s with perps grabbing knives from halal butchers. This is the second stabbing with knives from them in the past two months.
