A woman has died after being stabbed in a daylight attack in north London.
Witnesses said the victim, who was in her 40s or 50s, was knifed in the neck on a residential street in Tottenham at around 1pm this afternoon.
A 46-year-old man was arrested at the scene and is currently being quizzed by police.
Officers said the woman was rushed to hospital but died from her injuries.
Sergio Fernandes, 21, who works nearby at Unity Radio Online, said eyewitnesses told him the woman knew her attacker.
“They just said that these people had a history and that the man came and stabbed her four times in the neck,” he said.
“He stood there rolling a cigarette while they were waiting to take her away.”
Mr Fernandes, who arrived at the scene after police and paramedics, said he was told that the woman had just dropped her child off at school.
Police said road closures are in place as the investigation continues.
