The injured victims were last night understood to be in a critical condition at the Royal Berkshire Hospital. The suspect, Libyan asylum 25, was arrested at the scene by a hero lone police sergeant who rugby-tackled him to the floor. The attack is believed to have taken place as people enjoyed the last of the day’s sunshine at the popular park.
Personal trainer Lawrence Wort, 20, watched the terrifying scenes unfold in the park, which is popular with families and used as a venue for open-air concerts and plays.
Mr. Wort said: ‘The park was pretty full. One group of friends were sitting drinking when one lone person walked through, suddenly shouted some unintelligible words, and went around, trying to stab them.
‘He stabbed three of them, severely in the neck, and under the arms, and then turned and started running towards me, and we turned and started running.
‘When he realized that he couldn’t catch us, he tried to stab another group sitting down. He got one person in the back of the neck and then when he realized everyone was starting to run, he ran out of the park.
And speaking of the moment the suspect was arrested, a police source told the Sunday Mirror: ‘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 alone 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.’
Gruesome footage on social media revealed the attack’s appalling aftermath – three men lying a few feet apart on blood-soaked grass. Police arrived within minutes and frantically tried to keep them alive.
Today the Thames Valley Police Federation, which represents rank-and-file officers in the area, praised the bravery of officers who responded to the attack.
Chairman Craig O’Leary said: ‘First and foremost our thoughts are with the families of those who lost loved ones in the horrific incident last night and we wish our very best to those still injured.
‘There can be no doubt that the swift response of our Thames Valley Police colleagues saved further harm from being caused and potentially more lives from being lost.
‘There are barely words to describe their bravery – officers who ran towards danger with the sole thought of protecting the public we serve. Other colleagues valiantly rushed to the scene to try and save and preserve life.
‘While the investigation into this incident continues, what we can say is the public can rightly be proud of their emergency services today.’ Late last night 20 armed officers swarmed into a four-story block of flats about a mile from the park as a helicopter circled overhead.
Investigation and Witness
Counter-terrorism police will now take over the investigation after the frenzied attack which took place in Forbury Gardens, in the center of Reading, Berkshire, on Saturday.
It comes after witnesses said a knifeman targeted and stabbed people ‘at random’ before being ‘rugby-tackled’ to the ground by one unarmed police officer.
One witness said the attacker pulled a knife and ‘shouted some unintelligible words’ before trying to stab people in the packed park, which was said to be filled with families and young children at the time.
The witness said he saw the attacker stab three men ‘in the neck and under the arms’ before turning around and running at others.
Last night counter-terrorism officers were called in to help detectives following the attack, which police said at first was not thought to be terrorism-related, and carried out a controlled explosion at the suspect’s home address.
But this morning Deputy Assistant Commissioner Dean Haydon, Senior National Coordinator for the Counter Terrorism Policing (CTP) network, announced the attack is to be declared a ‘terrorist incident’. They will take over the investigation from Thames Valley Police.
It comes as today’s footage emerged which shows a man being detained by officers in the middle of a street following the frenzied stabbing attack in the park, which took place around 7 pm yesterday.
Witnesses said the attacker targeted a group of middle-aged men ‘sitting drinking beer’ and systematically stabbed them ‘in the neck and under the arms’.
Another witness told Mirror Online he saw blood spurting from victims, who dropped to the ground ‘like a weight’.
A fourth described how they saw CPR being performed on at least three people.
Officers carrying semi-automatic rifles stormed the four-story flats complex of nearby flats after evacuating residents shortly after 8 pm.
A neighbor who witnessed the raid on the flats said: ‘I was making dinner and I heard some noise. I looked outside my door and there were armed police everywhere.
‘I came out and police were on all the floors and in every stairwell. They had the place surrounded.’
The last confirmed UK terror attack took place in February when Sudesh Amman stabbed three people in Streatham, South London, before being shot dead by police.
It was unclear last night whether officers were hunting for suspects inside the flats, or whether they were looking for weapons.
Officers, with their guns, pointed up, were seen walking past a window on the first floor.
Allister Smith, who was being treated at the Royal Berkshire Hospital earlier today, told BBC Radio 5 Live that a nurse had told him that three people were killed in the attack.
‘I was being seen by a nurse who was taking my vitals,’ he said.
‘She seemed a bit shaken. She was chatting to one of her colleagues and then she turned round to me and said three people are dead.’
