Witnesses say London stabbing suspect made anti-Muslim slurs

Police are seeking more information about a London train station stabbing after several eyewitnesses said a suspect shouted anti-Muslim slogans.

The stabbing happened Monday as a train pulled into the Forest Hill station in southeast London. It was not immediately clear if the stabbing happened on the train or at the station.

The victim was hospitalized in serious condition and the suspect was arrested. He has not been charged.

Witness Miguel Oliveira told Britain's Press Association that the man was "shouting stuff like 'death to Muslims' and 'go back to Syria'" after the attack. Other witnesses had similar accounts.

British Transport Police say they are not treating the stabbing as terrorism-related "at this time."
