Childcare worker stabbed by three women in London

A CHILDCARE worker has been stabbed by three women in London, who reportedly chanted "Allah will get you".

The Ilford Recorder reports that Karrien Stevens, who runs the Little Diamonds childcare centre in Hermon Hill confirmed that one of her staff was the victim of a stabbing attack, while on her way to work.

The woman, reported to be in her 30s, was stabbed from behind and saved when a man came to her rescue and the attackers ran off.

"When she got to work we couldn't believe it and called the police straight away. It's terrible, I'm absolutely horrified,"

Ms Stevens said. "You don't expect something like this to happen on your doorstep."

Police and ambulance officers responded at 9:36am and treated the woman for a stab wound.

They drove her around the neighbourhood to see if she could point out the attackers but no arrests have been made as yet.
