It comes after at least 52 people were killed in a horrific far-right terrorist attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday, by Australian-born Extremist.
A stabbing in Surrey which saw a man rampage with a baseball bat and knife while allegedly shouting ‘all Muslims must die’ is being treated by police as a terror incident ‘inspired by the far-right’.
Neighbours in Viola Avenue, Stanwell, near Heathrow Airport, said the 50-year-old suspect had also been screaming ‘white supremacists rule’ before knifing a 19-year-old man in a nearby Tesco car park on Saturday night.
He also asked the teenager ‘Do you wanna die? Well you’re gonna die!’ ahead of the horrifying attack, according to witnesses.
The victim sustained non-life threatening injuries and remains in hospital, while the suspect is in custody after being arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and racially aggravated public order.
Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the Surrey attack on Sunday evening and thanked the emergency services for their ‘handling of the terrorist incident’.
