A man has been charged with the attempted murder of four women who suffered knife wounds in an attack near a Sainsbury's car park in south-west London.

Ethem Aydin Orho, of Deacons Walk, Hampton, will appear before magistrates in Wimbledon today also charged with one count of possession of an offensive weapon.

The 66-year-old was arrested yesterday after police were called to The Avenue in Hampton, Richmond-upon-Thames.

Four women aged between 53 and 67 were hurt during the incident, and while two were initially thought to have sustained life-threatening injuries, all four are now in a stable condition.

Speaking yesterday, Chief Superintendent Glenn Tunstall praised members of the public who provided first-aid to the victims.

"Their bravery and the outstanding courage of the officers who were first on the scene and confronted the armed man is worthy of praise," he said.

"An incident like this will cause considerable concern to the local community, and I would like to reassure them that uniform officers will be patrolling the area and can speak to anyone who has concerns."
