A nursery worker was left with broken ribs after she was kicked to the ground and slashed with a Stanley knife by three women chanting ‘Allah will get you’.
Karrien Stevens, who runs Little Diamonds Nursery in Hermon Hill, London said a member of staff was punched, kicked and slashed with a ‘Stanley knife’ while on her way to work this morning.
The victim, named as Katie, was walking down Wanstead High Street, in north-east London, when she was set upon and knifed, according to her boss.
She was attacked from behind and then stabbed in the arm as her assailants chanted ‘Allah’, however police are not treating it as a terrorist incident
Nearby schools sent out emails telling parents they were on ‘lockdown’ after the attack at about 9.30am.
The nursery boss said the victim, who is in her 30s, described the attackers as ‘Asian girls’. They ran off when a man came to the rescue and walked her to her workplace.
‘After it happened she was very shook up, very emotional, but she’s in hospital now,’ Ms Stevens said.
‘She’s had stitches and had some cracked ribs but she’ll be fine, she’s going to be discharged later today.’
