Two people left injured as man with 'kitchen knife' attacks Sony offices in London

Two people are injured after a stabbing at Sony's London headquarters today.

Police were called to the scene at approximately 11am and locked down Derry Street in Kensington after an unidentified man allegedly "stormed" the building with a "kitchen knife".

The Met Police have confirmed that one person has been arrested and the incident is not being treated as terror-related.

They added that the injuries were "not life-threatening or life-changing."

A witness, who works in the kitchen at the offices on Derry Street, Kensington, told "I heard shouting and looked out of the window and these two guys were having a fight. One of them on the floor and the other one was over him. I thought he was punching him and then I realised he had a big kitchen knife in his hand."

They continued: "He was trying to stab him but the guy was blocking him with his arms, but then he got him in the leg, on top of the leg, on the side, there was blood everywhere. They were both kitchen staff.

"People around were shouting but no one wanted to get too close because he had a fucking massive knife ‘They managed to get the guy off him and the other kitchen staff got a tea towel and was taken around the corner to get bandaged, the other guy was taken to the other end of the canteen to calm him down."

Staff reportedly fled the building and cowered under tables after the attack took place.

The building has now been evacuated and paramedics are said to be on the scene.

Met police said: "Two people have suffered stab injuries – their conditions are not life-threatening or life-changing. One person has been arrested. No evidence of any firearms involved in this incident. It is not being treated as terror-related. Officers remain on scene and the incident remains ongoing."
