Deadly Park Stabbings a Terror Attack

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Police in the UK are treating a stabbing rampage yesterday as a terrorist attack. The multiple stabbings, in which three people were killed, and three others seriously wounded, took place in a park, Forbury Gardens, on Saturday evening.

The investigation into the attack in the town of Reading, west of London, has been taken over by counter terror detectives. A 25-year-old local man was arrested at the scene and police say they are not looking for anyone else. Dean Haydon, the United Kingdom’s Coordinator of Counterterrorism Policing, said, “There is no intelligence to suggest that there is any further danger to the public.”

The park in Reading was full of people enjoying a warm summer evening on the grass, when a lone person walked through, and suddenly began shouting. He went to a large group of around 10 people and stabbed three of them severely in the neck and under the arms.

Meanwhile, the BBC reports that the man arrested at the scene is thought to be Libyan. No motive for the attack has been discovered as yet.

Although the incident came just hours after a Black Lives Matter demonstration at the Gardens, police said there was no link between the attack and the protest.
