A former teaching assistant at a Bromley primary school has been charged after attacking a family with a knife at their home in Beckenham.

Luke Nicholas, 28, of Sevenoaks, has been charged with two counts of GBH with intent, one count of actual bodily harm and possessing an offensive weapon.

The former employee of Princes Plain School, in Church Lane, Bromley, has been remanded in custody and is due to appear at Croydon Crown Court on May 31.

A 58-year-old man was taken to hospital suffering injuries to his arm and stomach. Two women, aged 54 and 29, were also taken to hospital for treatment to wounds on the hand and neck.

Nicholas was arrested a short while after by police in Lloyds Way, before being taken to hospital for treatment to a head injury.
