The reports from various media sources now can verify that at least 3 are heavily suspected dead with nine in grave injuries by a terrorist attack wielded ‘by a Libyan man’ at a park in Reading, where a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest had taken place just hours before the horrific incident.
The atrocity was known to have happened 7pm Saturday evening, with won victims being taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital with what authorities have described as a ‘serious incident’ in Forbury Gardens in Reading’s town center.
Luckily, the suspect have been apprehended in due course, who apparently committed the crime with a knife. He was alleged to have been taken down by a single brave policeman doing his hero;s share, handling the culprit in solo strike. The attack is yet to be found with a clear motif, as it leaves at least dozen casualties either dead or seriously injured.
Home Secretary Priti Patel said she was ‘deeply concerned’ by the incident.Prime Minister Boris Johnson designated the attack as ‘appalling’ and thanked the emergency services in his official responses.
A security source told the Press Association that the apprehended was currently in custody, and subsequent measures regarding his treatment would be disclosed in later days to come.
The videos from the site of the horrific incident have been circulating on social media as it showed four wounded screaming in agony as they were given relevant treatments including CPR by the police officers situated around the area. Air ambulance was put in for support purposes as it was shown to land inside near the stabbing incident. The injured are now placed in Intensive Care Units who were available for necessary capacities.
The place of the incident, Forbury Gardens, as previously mentioned, was the site of the Black Lives Matter protest which was put into closure two hours before the stabbings. The organizers have explicitly mentioned and drew the lines between the attacker and themselves, calling the relation between the two as unrelated. The attacker took advantage of the sunshine hour where sunbathers were enjoying their time for rest and relaxation.
These are the words that came out from the police authorities who was able to give a detailed account of how the attack played out: ‘A man pulled a knife and started attacking people at random in Reading, near the Crown Court.
‘It is thought there was one attacker who has surrendered to police.It appears the attack was stopped when a lone sergeant, who responded when the alarm was raised, ran to the scene, saw the attacker running away with a knife and rugby tackled him to the ground.
