The mother of a new-born baby has spoken of the shocking moment a man tried to get into her car following a stabbing.

Maria Perad, 26, said she was returning home from food shopping with her husband George and her one-month-old baby on Saturday afternoon (September 21) in Enfield when a man tried to pull open their car door, shouting “Help me. He is going to kill me. He has a knife”.

Mrs Perad, from Barnet, said: “We were sceptical at first. We thought he wanted to rob us.

“My partner carried on driving, but when I turned around there was another man with blood all over his face who went to attack the man.”

Mrs Perad claimed that the second man had been stabbed in the chest, throat and head.

She said her husband had got out the car to separate them. She said her husband, who is trained in mixed martial arts, held the second man while the other man sat on the ground.

Mrs Perad called the police. But after the two men were made aware the incident had been reported, they walked off down Exeter Road, she said. And by the time police arrived, the men had left the scene.

Met Police said officers were called just after 1.30pm on Saturday to reports of a fight between two men in an alleyway next to Exeter Road, Enfield.

One man was found with stab wounds and was taken to hospital, but his condition is not life changing or life threatening, the force said.

No arrests have been made and police enquiries are ongoing.
