A teenager was stabbed and another suffered injuries by an alleged masked attacker at a McDonald's in Ealing.

Metropolitan police were called shortly after 9.30pm on Monday (October 31) to reports of a stabbing at the fast food restaurant, in The Broadway.

Officers found two boys who were injured, including a 14-year-old who had suffered stab wounds and was taken to hospital with non life threatening injuries.

A 16-year-old boy had suffered a minor cut to the head, but he was not taken to hospital.

Witnesses have described the attacker as wearing a mask

Witnesses described the attacker as a "hooded male, possibly white, wearing an Oxygen mask or breathing apparatus and green washing up gloves, between 18 and 20-years-old," according to freelance journalist Rory Thomas.

It is also alleged he was also making "sexually inappropriate comments," according to witnesses, although it is not clear who these comments were made to.

The 14-year-old boy was reportedly stabbed in the head and back, although this has not yet been confirmed, resulting in a significant loss of blood, before being wrapped up in bandages.

Enquiries are continuing and no arrests have been made so far, officers added.

Councillor for the Ealing Broadway ward, Alex Stafford, said: "That is awfully shocking news. I hope the boy is okay and the offenders caught swiftly."

Cllr Stafford added it was the first time he had heard of a stabbing at a business in the centre of Ealing.
