This is the moment a mentally ill Norwegian of Somali origin was pinned to the ground after he murdered an American woman and injured five pedestrians on a knife rampage in Russell Square last night.

His victim, a US citizen in her 60s, said ‘he’s still here’ as she used her final words to warn others their lives were also in danger, a witness told MailOnline today.

She died in a pool of blood as she was cradled by a family of Spanish tourists, as the 19-year-old silently stabbed pedestrians in the back, side and arms who were left ‘screaming and covered in blood’.

Police were called at 10.30pm last night and Chanel Britton, 19, of Barnsley, who was staying in one of Russell Square’s many hotels, captured the moment up to eight officers searched him after being Tasered to the ground.

The teenager, a Norwegian of Somali origin who came to Britain aged five, was arrested on suspicion of murder and he spent the night in hospital before being moved to a south London police station.

A witness, who used towels bought on an earlier shopping trip to stem the flow of blood, told MailOnline: ‘I was just trying to console her. The victim said something about: ‘He’s still here, he’s still here’ – after that she was not lucid. That’s when I saw someone. He was meandering about. He was very disturbed’.
