Following an attack in London on Tuesday that resulted in multiple injuries, a guy brandishing a sword has been taken into custody.

In a statement, the Metropolitan police said: “Police and other emergency services are in Hainault, east London, at a serious incident in which a man with a sword has been arrested.”

“We were called shortly before 7am to reports of a vehicle being driven into a house in the Thurlow Gardens area. There were reports people have been stabbed.

“At this time we understand the suspect went on to attack other members of the public and two police officers. We are awaiting an update on the condition of those injured.”

A 36-year-old was arrested at the scene, and five people have been taken to hospital.

In video released to X, a man is seen brandishing a big sword while emergency personnel are encircling a building.

In one of the films, the man—dressed in a bright yellow sweater—seems to be lurking behind a garbage can and squatting outside of people’s windows.

Before he heard a scream, the witness stated there looked to be a standoff between the suspect and the cops in an alleyway.

The man told Sky News: “From that commotion, at least one person was knifed – I think it might have been a woman because I heard a woman scream and then some sort of sobbing sounds.

“I then heard a voice say something like ‘she’s been stabbed in the face’ or ‘we need assistance’ – you know, calling for medical back-up.”
