LONDON: One man died and two were injured in a triple stabbing attack Monday night here at Parsons Green train station, British media reported.
According to authorities responding to the crime scene, all three victims — one of whom succumbed to his injuries and the other two remain hospitalised — were male.
Police said the attack is not being treated as an act of terrorism and have cordoned off the area as well as the tube station.
The Metropolitan Police and London Ambulance Service reached the train station around 7:37 PM local time (12:37 AM PST, Tuesday) “to reports of a stabbing outside Parsons Green Tube Station”, a police spokesperson said.
“Three males, no further details, have suffered stab injuries. They are currently being treated by London Ambulance Service,” he had said at that time.
Witnesses to the stabbing assault state seeing CPR being administered to the victims.
“I was on Parsons Green walking my dog when a policeman ran up to us and said to leave the park immediately so that a helicopter could land,” Holly Eddleston — an onlooker — told a local media outlet.
The horrifying stabbing comes shortly after a similar attack last month where 30 people were injured.
