Shouts, accompanied by frantic footsteps, echoed through an east London subway station Saturday as people fled from a knife-wielding assailant. The suspect, who allegedly injured three and reportedly yelled “This is for Syria,” wore a black balaclava, a gray shirt and khakis. He lunged at police officers who brought him to the ground with a stun gun.
An electric zap filled the air as the man collapsed, his knife sliding from his hand onto the tiled floor. The clamor persisted as some onlookers lingered to watch the arrest unfold. Then, a cry louder than the rest was caught on video.
