Three people have died and three others were seriously injured after a mass stab in a Reading Park.
The terrible incident occurred in the city of Berkshire on Saturday at 7 p.m.
A 25-year-old man was later arrested in an apartment block after being allegedly “tackled rugby” by a hero policeman on the ground.
The police say that they are not currently treating it as a terrorist attack. They also said it was “not connected” to a protest against Black Lives Matter that had previously taken place there.
The mirror reports on how the terrible incident happened in Forbury Gardens Park in the city center, which was full of people who enjoyed the evening sunshine and the warmth.
A witness told Mirror Online how he saw blood spurt and victims fall “like a weight” when a man accidentally “tapped” on the head.
Another witness said that the knife man “shouted a few unintelligible words” and stabbed the victims in the neck and under the arms when the horrific mass stabbing unfolded.
The extremely graphic video on social media shows at least four people covered in blood while witnesses and police officers performed CPR on victims who appeared to be motionless.
A source told the Sunday Mirror: “A man pulled a knife and arbitrarily attacked people in Reading near Crown Court. It is believed that there was an attacker.
“It seemed as if the attack had stopped when a lone sergeant, who responded when the alarm went off, ran to the scene, saw the attacker run away with a knife, and stabbed him to the ground with rugby.”
Another witness, Dan, 26, who was drinking wine in the park with two friends, said he saw a man in a group “just talking in circles” and then started running around the group and “following them” Pat your head “.
“I thought they were playing duck goose and thought someone was sick. We found blood spurting out,” he said.
Dan said he saw the man punch a woman in the neck – and then she “dropped like a weight”. In the meantime four people were on the ground and “immobile”. He said it all happened so quickly, even though the park was full, not many people seemed to have noticed.
“It was strange – not how you see it in movies, there was no screaming. We were walking past people dancing in groups – they hadn’t seen what happened,” he said.
A second witness, Lawrence Wort, was sitting near the group in the park when the attack took place and said he was “completely accidental”.
Mr Wort said: “The park was quite full, many people were sitting around drinking with friends when a single person walked through the park. [He] suddenly shouted some unintelligible words and walked around a large group of about 10 to stab them.
“He stabbed three of them violently on the neck and under the arms and then turned and ran towards me as we turned and started running. When he realized that he couldn’t catch us, he tried another group to stab, sat down. “
Detective Chief Superintendent Ian Hunter, head of the Thames Valley Criminal Police, said: “The Thames Valley Police Major Crime Unit has launched an investigation into the murder.
“We have made an arrest and are currently not looking for anyone else to deal with the incident. There is no evidence that there is another danger to the public. However, we urge people to stay vigilant and report suspicious things by calling the police.
“This is not currently treated as a terrorist attack. However, the officials are open to the motivation for the incident and are supported by counter terrorism policing South East colleagues.
“There have been some reports that this incident is related to the Black Lives Matter protest that took place in Reading this afternoon. I can confirm that this incident is unrelated. It happened about three hours after the protest ended.
“We are also aware that the incident was recorded on cell phones and we would like to hear it from anyone who has video footage. Out of respect for the dead and injured, as well as their relatives, please do not distribute this footage on social media – this will be incredibly stressful. “
