A man was seriously wounded in a knife attack in central London.

A man in his 60 was stabbed with a knife outside of the Home Office in London, according to police. The suspect has been arrested and taken in for questioning.

"Officers quickly detained a 29-year-old man near the scene at Smith Square who was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and possession of CS spray," police said in a statement. "He was taken to a central London police station where he remains in custody."

The victim went into the Home Office building asking for help after being attacked. Authorities initially described his wounds as “life-threatening”, but later clarified that the victim’s life is not in danger, Euronews writes.

This attack came a day after the Home Office launched an campaign against knife crimes.
