Holy completely random knife attack, Batman!
A man has been charged following a double knife attack on two Orthodox Jews in Golders Green.
Mohamed Jama Ahmed, 37, of North Circular Road, Cricklewood, was arrested after two stabbings which happened just meters apart in roads off Golders Green Road on Friday.
A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said the attacks, which happened at around 6pm, appear to have been random and unprovoked, but were not being treated as faith hate crimes.
Officers were alerted to a 47-year-old man in The Drive who was suffering from stab wounds to his arm and chest.
While at the scene, police were informed that a 43-year-old man had been stabbed in nearby Beverley Gardens.
Both victims were taken to hospital and are said to be in a stable condition.
Ahmed was arrested on Sunday and charged with two counts of assault involving grievous bodily harm.
He is due to appear at Hendon Magistrates Court today.
In other random attack news, palestinian terrorists just happened to fire least 10 Qassam rockets and 3 mortar shells at the western Negev.
Brian of London adds: Let’s get this straight. A random man, with a random knife, randomly stabs a couple of random Jews in London’s best known Jewish neighbourhood.
I disagree with designating anything as a hate crime: a crime is a crime. But as we have these laws, how on earth can the Police jump to the conclusion that this particular random man just happened to stab not one, but two overtly Jewish men. Randomly.
