Parsons Green knife attack: One dead and two injured in stabbing at London station

Stabbing incident is not being treated as terror-related

One man has been killed and two hospitalised in a knife attack at Parsons Green station in London.

Emergency services were on the scene on Monday evening and police cordoned off the area.

Eyewitnesses saw the victims being given CPR on the pavement.

The attack is not being treated as terrorist related.

One witness said he believed the triple stabbing occurred during “a fight”.

A woman could be heard crying after people, who appeared to know the victim, were ushered inside the police cordon.

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: “Officers responded to reports of a number of injured males outside Parsons Green Tube Station at 1937hrs on Monday, 16 October.
