Two quizzed over school run stabbing
Police were today questioning two men after a father was stabbed as he dropped his child off at a primary school.
Witnesses said the victim was involved in a row over a parking space near Eldon Junior School in Edmonton, north London, yesterday morning.
He was approached by two men and stabbed in the chest after taking his child into the school.
John O'Brien, who has two children at the school, told the Daily Mirror: "The row was over a parking space. Two guys were having a go at him through the window of his car.
"With the amount of cars dropping off kids it can get really manic. I've seen quite a few arguments. Nearly all of them in front of children."
Two men were arrested and were being held in custody, police said.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Police were called at 9.05am to an assault in Chester Road. They found a man suffering a stab wound to the chest. He was taken to hospital. His condition is not believed to be life-threatening.
"Two men were arrested in connection with the assault. Inquiries are ongoing."
