A married couple was slashed by a thug, buses were canceled, and there was a ‘explosion’ on an industrial estate.

This lunchtime, here are the latest headlines from The Washington Newsday.

A coked-up yob with a kitchen knife attacked a married couple out for an early morning walk.

When John North requested for a lighter, Kewal Singh and Surjit Kaur replied they didn’t have one and began to walk away.

The 26-year-old pulled out the blade, followed the pair, and slashed Mr Singh on the left cheek from behind.

When Mr Singh realized North was following them and turned to look around, “his face was cut with a knife behind his left eye.”
