UK : Police declare terrorism incident after teenager stabbed in Surrey

18 March 2019

A non-fatal stabbing in Surrey is being treated as a terrorism incident by police.

Officers were called to reports of a man acting aggressively and shouting racist comments while carrying a baseball bat and a knife in Stanwell at 10.30pm on Saturday night.

Shortly afterwards, police received reports that a man had been stabbed – and detectives believe the same suspect is behind both incidents.

Armed police urgently began searching for the suspect, and a 50-year-old man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and racially aggravated public order.

Surrey Police said the 19-year-old man who was stabbed sustained non-life threatening injuries and is being treated in hospital.

Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, head of counter-terrorism policing, said: “Whilst this investigation is still in its infancy, it has hallmarks of a terror event, inspired by the far right, and therefore it has been declared a terrorism incident.
