There were five stabbing attacks in the Edmonton area

A man accused of carrying out a series of knife attacks was charged with five counts of attempted murder.

The attacks, in Edmonton, north of London, began Saturday night with four people being stabbed in a 10-hour period.

A fifth victim was found injured Tuesday morning on the street where the first attack occurred.

Jason Kakaire, 29, is due to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court, the Met Police said.

The force said earlier that the victims of the weekend were approached from behind and stabbed.

After Tuesday's attack, when a man was stabbed while walking with a friend, Scotland Yard said he put extra cops on patrol and asked the public to stay vigilant.
