A passenger has been labeled a hero after wrestling a knife away from a man who had boarded a London bus in broad daylight.
Mobile footage of the incident in Stoke Newington yesterday afternoon shows the man wrestle a knife away from the attacker as other passengers watch on in horror.
He eventually grasps the weapon off the armed man who makes a dash for the door before escaping down the street.
The hero can be seen clutching the huge weapon as he leans out of the bus and yells ‘I’m an African, you will never take my life’.
The circumstances that led up to the incident on the number 149 bus at 1.55pm aren’t clear.
The hero passenger, who is aged in his 20s, suffered minor cuts to his hands and head and was taken to hospital.
A Met Police spokesman said: ‘He was taken to an East London hospital where he was treated for his injuries.
‘He has now been discharged. There have been no arrests and enquires continue.
‘Police urged any witnesses or people who may have filmed the incident to call 07500 607 652 or the police non-emergency line on 101.’
