Members of the public take down man who drove van into worshipers in London

Members of the public took down the suspect who drove a van into a group of worshippers outside a north London Mosque early Monday, injuring 10 people and killing one in an attack officials have called “sickening.”

The 48-year-old man allegedly drove the van into the crowd on Seven Sisters Road, near a Muslim community center and a mosque in Finsbury Park, shortly after midnight when worshippers had just finished Ramadan prayers..
It was members of the public who wrestled the suspect to the ground and held him down before police arrived, according to CNN. The Iman from the mosque urged the citizens not to harm the suspect, witnesses told the man. He was arrested at the scene on suspicion of attempted murder and the incident is being investigated as a terrorist attack. Witnesses said that the man called out “I want to kill Muslims,” as they tackled him.
