Weird UK stabbing attack
The Mirror reported that one witness wrote on Twitter that the woman was "trying to stab everyone near traders' stalls and shouting in Arabic" - although the tweet appears to have been deleted since.

Man speaking Arabic = "Asians"
Woman speaking Arabic = "Large Woman"

A comment in the Sun article:
AnnaAbingdon: "On mi way to wuk and tarns in lockdarn cos of a woman guin round stabbing folk, alus a hoot in barnsley"
Is in a pidgin language? I don't think anyone can really spell that badly, has to be an actual dialect.

The BBC have finally admitted it was a woman, but are steadfastly refusing to report her being a Muslim.
Police are ‘keeping an open mind on her motivation ‘.
Fuck the BBC

Terrorism investigators are on the scene.
Because you know, for absolutely no possible reason at all.
> Detectives from the North East Counter Terrorism unit are assisting with the inquiry.
BBC report: "Police are keeping an open mind about the incident."
Actual police statement, "Although we are keeping an open mind, we have called in the Counter Terrorism unit for support in the investigation."
Wow, BBC really selectively edited their statement.

A six foot Muslim with a foot long kitchen knife running around stabbing people and shouting ‘kill, kill, kill’ must have been fucking terrifying.

A local market trader took charge, the police were too scared to do anything:
The police said 'leave this knife'. Police were a little bit scared. I'm not scared. I'll go near to this lady. I said 'nobody's going to touch you, leave this knife'."
After she then put the knife down the police jumped her.
Fuck the police.

It's so outlandish it sounds like a totally contrived story someone posts on reddit which immediately gets responses of reposts to /r/quityourbullshit.
However the story was validated by dozens of witnesses.

"A local market trader took charge"
It was his knife. The woman stole it from his store and he was following her to get it back.

He’s a Christian from Ghana.
