According to local reports, which cited witnesses, the suspect entered a shop and started stabbing people.
"The shopkeeper tried to get the knife away from him, but he got away and stabbed a woman on a bicycle. The knife was really big," a nurse at the scene of the incident told The Telegraph.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson both expressed their gratitude to first responders on Twitter. "Terrorists seek to divide us and to destroy our way of life ― here in London we will never let them succeed," Khan said. "My thoughts are with the injured and all those affected," Johnson said.
