Church school 'lockdown' as nursery worker slashed

The woman in her 30's, who works for Little Diamonds nursery in Hermon Hill, was attacked while walking down Wanstead High Street on her way to work this morning, reports the Ilford Recorder.

The victim was waiting at a junction in Wanstead at around 9.30am when she was attacked from behind by the trio, pulled to the ground, and attacked with a blade.

"She was taken to an east London hospital for treatment before being discharged".

Police have launched a hate crime probe after a nursery worker was beaten and stabbed by three women who were reportedly shouting about Allah.

Stevens said that her colleague did not know her attackers and that she was left shaken by the ordeal.

"They started kicking and punching her and then took out a knife and slashed her arm".

No arrests have been made and enquiries continue, police have said.

They are not treating the attack as a terrorist incident.

"The police turned up, the ambulance cleaned her wounds up".

She insisted the incident was not related to the nursery or their work.

"Her stomach was hurting, she had marks all over her, her hair was pulled out".

"Counter-terror officers are aware of the incident but it is not being treated as terrorism at this stage", a Metropolitan Police spokesman said, the Mirror reported.

The three suspects fled before police arrived. "She was in tears and she had a cut right up her arm", she said, according to the Daily Mail.

"But I was thinking the worst".
