Machete Wielding Man Tasered At Tulse Hill Station

A machete-wielding man was Tasered on a railway station platform as “terrified” rush hour commuters looked on.

Police pinned the man – filmed waving a “massive” blade at Tulse Hill station in South London – to the ground shortly after 18:30 GMT on Monday. Witnesses described “chaos” as he chased people with the weapon.

A 59-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and possessing an offensive weapon, police said.
One witness @Vikjas85 tweeted: “Man at Tulse Hill Station with a massive machete just been Tasered by the police.”

Many people have also taken to social media to praise police for their quick action.

Mattvan Pricey said: “Congratulations to the officers who responded to last night’s incident at Tulse Hill completely professional in managing a volatile situation in a safe manner.” Social media user Caroline said: “Well done as always to the police – you do a great job all the time and thank you for preventing fatalities and injuries – my husband at Tulse Hill at the time.” British Transport Police (BTP) said there were no reported injuries and what happened was not believed to be terror-related.

The arrest comes on the day Sadiq Khan announced Lambeth Council leader Lib Peck as the director of his new Violence Reduction Unit.
