Man partially beheaded in street axe attack

#1
A man has died after being attacked with an axe in a wealthy London suburb.

Officers found a man, armed with an axe or hatchet, standing over a body in Eton Avenue, Swiss Cottage, north-west London, at 0940 GMT on Monday.

Police said the victim, a 61-year-old man who lived locally, had suffered severe head injuries.

Detectives say it is unlikely to have been a random incident. A 37-year-old man from the Camden area was arrested near the scene of the attack.

Police said they are trying to establish if the men knew each other.

'Head gone'

Witness Margaret Mikkelsen said people confronted a man who was standing holding an axe while another man was lying face down on the floor.

"A man who lives in my building was telling him to put the axe down then two men grabbed scaffolding poles to try to stop him hurting anyone else," she said.

People were shouting at him to put the axe down but he only responded when the police arrived, she added.

Another witness said: "I saw the dead body, the head just gone, the guy who had just done it was walking away really calmly like nothing had happened at all."

Eton Avenue remained closed for the rest of the day as forensic experts carried out examinations.

Scotland Yard said they were called to reports of a "serious assault in progress" and found the victim who was already dead.

Think of all those axe collecters, and enthusiasts who are going to get shafted by the government with unequal compensation when the shock announcement from Tony Blair tommorrow is that axes are to be banned to stop the shocking number of axe related killing spree's.

Apparently some passers-by tried to subdue him with scaffolding poles, looks like some scaffolders are out of a job too ;)
