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.advertisement
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.
Move along, no religious hatred here. The Quran and Hadith have nothing to do with this. Religion is not involved. Just a nut with a knife upset about his last batch of horseradish, for his gefilte fish, being too weak.
