A heavily pregnant woman was stabbed near a Tube station in an “horrific, unprovoked attack”.

The victim, aged in her 30s, was assaulted by a man in Seven Sisters Road underneath the bridge by Finsbury Park Tube station at around 6.30pm on Friday.

She sustained a facial injury believed to have been caused by a knife and a shoulder injury, and was taken to hospital. She was later released with non-life-threatening or life-changing injuries.

A 19-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident and has been bailed until February 26.

Detective Constable Louise Elliott said:” This was an horrific, unprovoked attack on a vulnerable and heavily pregnant woman.

“This incident has understandably left her severely traumatised.

“I appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and remembers seeing anything that may help the investigation, to call police.”
