A rabbi was stabbed in broad daylight on a London street today in a suspected hate crime before two hero builders tackled the knifeman to the ground.

Horrified witnesses screamed ‘He’s got a knife… stabbing!’ before they grabbed the suspect and pinned him down after the attack in Stoke Newington, north London.

Rabbi Alter Yaakov Schlesinger, in his 50s, was taken to hospital after being stabbed multiple times including in the head and the knifeman was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Construction site manager Lazar Friedlander and his brother Matt have told how they ran towards the attacker and restrained him after hearing a ‘serious scream’.

Lazar said: ‘I’m Jewish myself, and I can see another Jewish man shouting ‘hold him, catch him, he’s got a knife! Stabbing!’

‘There were a couple of other people trying to grab him. Me and my brother managed to force him down and put his hands behind his back until the police came. I wouldn’t call myself a hero. You act in the heat of the moment.’

Witnesses said the victim, who is in his 50s, was chased down Stoke Newington High Street, Hackney, by a man in his 40s carrying a large knife just before 11am

The victim, who was wearing Hasidic clothing, was knifed multiple times including in the head, police said, before he was tackled by local heroes

Though officers said the incident was not being treated as terror-related, some onlookers, believed he may have been targeted because of his religion.

‘Why he stabbed the Jewish man? I reckon it was a hate crime,’ Mr Friedlander said.

He added that he tried to speak to the assailant after pinning him down but ‘he just blanked me and wouldn’t say anything’.

The rabbi, said to be from Stamford Hill, was standing outside a bank when he was set upon in the unprecedented attack, one of his friends told MailOnline
