A nursery teacher was stabbed on her way to work at Little Diamonds nursery in Hermon Hill in Wanstead, London.  Her employer confirmed the attack and the woman is currently in the hospital with minor wounds.

Employer, Karen Stevens, says that she was set upon by three girls who pulled her to the ground, stabbed her in the arm, and then ran off.

The woman could not identify her attackers, but some news outlets report they shouted, “Allah”. Police, however, are not treating this as a terror incident.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman stated:

“We were called at 9.36am to reports of a stabbing in Hermon Hill. Officers responding to the scene discovered a woman in her 30s who had suffered slash wounds. Her injuries are not life threatening but she has been taken to hospital as a precaution. The three suspects fled the scene before police officers arrived and they are still not accounted for.”

Precautions were also taken with nearby schools:

“Redbridge Council were advised of a reported stabbing in the north of the borough this morning.We informed schools and early years providers of this incident and advised them to take precautions to keep children safe until we could clarify the situation. We have now given them updated information and advice.”
