ENFIELD – Liban Malhamoub, 45, who attempted to murder a woman and three children in Palmers Green Enfield has pleaded guilty.
Malhamoub stabbed a woman and her three children on Saturday, 6 July 2019 in Livingstone Road, N13.
He pleaded guilty for four counts of attempted murder at the Old Bailey on Monday, 11 January.
Malhamoub will be sentenced at the same court on Friday, 12 March.
Police and London Ambulance met a woman in her 30s and her three children, all under the age of 12, with stab wounds on the street in July 2019.
They were rushed to the hospital where they underwent extensive medical treatment for their injuries.
The Police arrested the suspect, Malhamoub at the scene on suspicion of attempted murder and was taken to a North London police station where he was charged two days after.
On Monday at the Old Bailey, the court heard how the suspect ‘carried out a frenzied attack on his victims’.
The police said the parties involved were known to each other.
In a statement, Detective from the Central East Command Unit, Superintendent Adams Ghaboos described it as a “tragic case in which the woman and three children suffered horrendous injuries in an unprovoked attack”.
He added, “I would like to commend their bravery and resilience over the past 19 months. Their strength has been incredible.
“I would also like to thank local residents and the community for coming together and helping my officers with their investigation.
“This was a difficult inquiry for all of those involved, especially when we consider the age of the victims. We anticipate Malhamoub will receive a lengthy sentence for his crimes and hope that this will bring an element of closure to his victims after the ordeal they have suffered. We will continue to support them in their recovery.”
