Man charged over stab attacks on two women

A man has been charged after two women were stabbed in separate attacks in south-east London.

In the first incident a 26-year-old was attacked in Bromley Road just after 09:00 BST on 22 August.

On Thursday morning a 31-year-old was stabbed after leaving a supermarket in Plumstead Common Road. She suffered five serious stab wounds to her legs.

Archibald Reverent Foster, 47, of Tredown Road, Sydenham, faces two counts of attempted murder.

He will appear at Bexley Magistrates' Court later.

The 31-year-old victim, who remains in hospital in a stable condition, also sustained injuries to her hands, fingers and neck, police said.

The first victim, who suffered stab injuries to her hand, arm and leg, was also taken to hospital.
