Speaking outside the flat, Ian Grant confirmed that his cousin had schizophrenia and that there had been a ‘couple of incidents with police’ in the past, but added that he was ‘not like that, he’s not violent’.
Another neighbour said: ‘He wouldn’t hurt a fly. We take him food round to help out.’Hmmm....
But they said ‘he does become very edgy when he doesn’t have his weed’, which he smokes ‘a lot’./facepalm
Police have said the latest attack has 'not yet been formally linked' to the other four, but the culprit or culprits could be suffering from mental health issues.
There is nothing to suggest the stabbings are terror related.Apart from them causing terror?
Tarek Elmadkhoun, 32, said this morning: 'It happened just outside my door. My wife heard some talking at 5am. She's a bit worried.
'I just moved here one week ago. To be honest it's a bit worrying. My wife doesn't speak English. She doesn't know what to do.'
Kelvin Ojo, 36, added: 'It's scary now, this is not normal.
'It's been peaceful for a while until all this drama started coming up. Now I'm starting thinking about moving from this area, I'm not liking it.
'It could happen to anyone - my friends, my family, it could happen to me. It's really scary.
'We don't even know this guy they are talking about, so it's really scary.'London. So very enriched.
