Three revellers were stabbed at last weekend’s Swedish House Mafia gig in Milton Keynes, just a week after nine people were slashed at the trio’s gig in Ireland, two seriously.
While British police said they were seeking a ‘man aged in his early 20s, who wearing a blue T-shirt, black jacket and jogging bottoms’, press reports said Irish police were holding one suspect linked to four of the attacks, and others who used bottles and knives in what were apparently unprovoked attacks.
The sister of one victim told the Belfast Telegraph her brother ‘can hardly remember it. He said it was all a blur’.
"He was just watching the show when someone came up and stabbed him four times in the back. He didn't know the guy,” she said,
"Two other guys who are on his football team were also attacked but he wasn't at the concert with them,” she added. (Telegraph: http://bit.ly/NCgxC8 )
Personal safety site real-self-defense.com warns that most knife attacks ‘are practically impossible to stop’ and paints a graphic picture of the threat the knowledgeable knife attacker poses.
“An attacker, with any idea of what he or she is doing, will overwhelm you with a hail of cuts that will start at the nearest body part and end in a vital target,” the site warns.
“Within a second you may lose your fingers, have severed tendons of your arms, and be finished with a stab to your eye, or throat, or trunk.” (http://bit.ly/NTlTrl )
NoNonsenseSelfDefense offers a similarly bleak threat assessment.
“Once you commit to a defense against a knife-wielding attacker, you must accept that you will get hurt. Without overcoming this psychological hurdle, you cannot hope to survive,” it says, “There is no perfect defense against a knife . . . “
