A woman has been stabbed three times in the back as she pushed her child in a pram in an unprovoked attack in south London.
The 36-year-old was attacked from behind by a lone man who did not speak as he repeatedly knifed her before fleeing the scene, police said.
No arrests have been made.
Officers were called shortly before 5.30pm on Monday to Downton Avenue, Streatham Hill.
The woman was taken to hospital where her injuries were deemed not life-threatening or life-changing.
