Serious assault on pregnant woman

APPEAL: Police seek information following assault on pregnant woman in Kilburn, northwest London

A PREGNANT woman was seriously assaulted in northwest London on Monday evening, police have said.

The unnamed woman, who is six months pregnant, was on her way home from work when she saw three suspects walking together ahead of her as she walked from Kilburn tube station.

The suspects had turned right off Calcott Road into Buckley Road and were now walking towards the victim.

All suspects passed by the victim, however, within a few seconds she was grabbed from behind over her left shoulder and around her neck.

One of the suspects produced a knife and began to jab the blade into her stomach area violently and aggressively.

She received cuts to her hand whilst trying to hold back the knife, which is described as three inches and brass coloured with a serrated edge.

The victim screamed and shouted, which resulted in the suspect letting go of her casually before they all walked away in the direction of Kilburn High Road.

She then called police from her mobile phone.

The suspects are described as black males, approximately aged between15-20 years old.

One of the suspects was wearing a 'Barbour' style padded jacket, dark green with a diamond pattern. He was also wearing black woollen gloves and a black hoodie.

PC Paul Connelly from the Priority Crime Unit at Brent is appealing for witnesses following the attack.

He said: "This was a deeply traumatic and horrific ordeal for the victim and we are treating this incident seriously. I believe that there would have been many people in the area at the time who may have seen or even heard the events leading up to this assault. I urge anyone with information to contact us on 0208 733 3250 call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111"
