A man stabbed a passenger on a train at a south London station and then chased people shouting: "I want to kill a Muslim", the Daily Mirror reported on Monday, in an incident police said was not "terrorism-related."

Shoppers and other travelers ran away as the man roamed the streets for up to 15 minutes, the newspaper reported.

"A man has been arrested after a man was seriously assaulted at Forest Hill station this afternoon," British Transport Police said in a statement on their website. "We are investigating the circumstances of the Forest Hill incident, but at this time we are not treating it as terrorism-related."

Last month, a British-Pakistani man suffered severe burns after a group of fourteen teenage boys threw acid on his face in an attack in east London.

Imran Khan, 37, was left with burning scars after the street attack, according to The Mirror. The British-Pakistani recalled he was attacked by 14 teenagers in Barking, Essex, just minutes before he tried to deliver a pizza from his shop.

“There were a group of 13 or 14 of them – they just surrounded me. They started swearing at me and I didn’t know what to do,” he said. “They took the food off me and threw it at my face.”

Shuaib | 5 years ago | Reply @Bunny Rabbit: Solar you forget that there London is 95% if not 99% non muslim? That there are over 100 different nationalities there,over 25 major languages spoken, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Christians, Jews and atheists? You have a Muslim obsession that is all. As someone living in London,I know for a fact that Muslims are a tiny minority.
