Leytonstone stabbing: Man 'screams this is for Syria' in knife attack at Tube station

I went to school in Leytonstone. It's about a mile from Walthamstow. From the London Evening Standard,  the Mirror and the Express.

Update - police are treating this as a terrorist incident.

A stabbing at a Tube station in east London is being treated as a "terrorist incident", Scotland Yard has said.

Man tasered as police swarm underground station while onlooker shouts "you're no Muslim" Keep up the pretence - but no one is fooled, not no more.

A man has been stabbed in an attack at a train station that witnesses claim is linked to Syria. The victim is thought to have been slashed in the neck in a suspected knife attack at Leytonstone station in east London

Scotland Yard were called just after 7pm to reports of a stabbing with reports of the man threatened people with a knife outside the station. 

"Officers from British Transport Police are now dealing with the incident at the scene. We are aware of one man having sustained serious stab injuries. We await details of any other injuries."

According to reports, a man was seen wielding a machete and screamed "this is for Syria" during the attack.

One person, who claims to have witnessed the attack, took to Twitter to reveal details of the horror. 

"As I walked down I just saw a lot of people running but I ignored it and kept walking to get my train, but suddenly what I saw I couldn't believe my eyes and what I saw was I guy with a knife and a dead guy on the floor. I was so scared I ran for my life. After good 10-15 police came and got the guy and arrested him. And as he was coming out this is what he said "This is what happens when you f*** with mother Syria all of your blood will be spilled"."

Horrific video from the scene shows a large pool of blood on the floor as stunned commuters run away. Bloody footprints can be seen surrounding the large puddle of blood.

The victim was rushed to hospital in a serious condition with multiple stab wounds, paramedics said. Frightened witnesses described how their normal Saturday night-out turned into a horror show.  One said the victim was an "elderly" man with a younger female family member.

 

Pray for the recovery of the victim.
