A man arrested on suspicion of launching a far right terror attack in Surrey at the weekend has been named locally as, father of four, Vincent Fuller.
The 50-year-old from Staines was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and racially aggravated public order offences, after a 19-year-old man was stabbed on Saturday night.
Police said they were treating it as a terrorist incident and said the attack had the hallmarks of one that had been inspired by the far right.
Witnesses claimed that a man dressed all in green and wearing a balaclava had begun attacking vehicles with a knife in Stanwell at around 10.30pm on Saturday.
Mariam Parker-Reed, who alerted the police, said: “I heard a man on Saturday evening shouting ‘kill all muslims’ and ‘white supremacy rules’. That’s what made me call the police.”
