A man who was allegedly responsible for the stabbing that took place in Brentford, UK was arrested by the police.


Following the stabbing a man in his 20s was killed and a woman in her 80’s was heavily wounded.

"Sadly, one person died at the scene. We treated another person at the scene and took them to a hospital as a priority," London Ambulance Service said in a statement.

The wounded woman who is a mother-of-seven was leaving the house of her friend when suddenly she was attacked.

"She was walking home from her friend's house and she thought the man had pushed her but she had been stabbed in the back. She is a lovely woman. I've known her more than 30 years. Everyone knows her," an unnamed man who knows the wounded woman told Sky News.

The arrested man if proved guilty will face two charges which are attempted murder and murder.

The police said that the attack does not link to terrorism.

Currently no one else except the arrested man is a suspect.
