Cops arrest ‘man with knife’ outside London train station
A MAN allegedly seen with a knife outside a major London train station has been arrested by cops.
The incident happened this lunchtime at Paddington Station when police were alerted to a man acting suspiciously.
Pictures quickly emerged of two police officers and a member of the public trying to restrain the man.
It is understood the man was armed with a knife, with a witness reporting that he was shouting “Allahu Akbar”.
It was also widely reported the man attacked an officer, but the British Transport Police have since ruled this out.
The man is suspected by police to have mental health issues.
