A kitchen porter named Mohammed is said to have tackled London Bridge killer Usman Khan on Friday during his lunch break.
The SunOnline reported that Mohammed joined other passersby to corner Khan before police shot him dead.
Mohammed is said to be one of the men seen trying to disarm the knife-wielding Khan, who killed two people and injured another three.
Police are believed to have interviewed the courageous kitchen porter as a witness after the area was put on lockdown.
Speaking close to the murder scene last night, Mohammed’s boss told Sun Online: “He was there. He held the guy down. The terrorist was pinned down to the floor. He was on his break. He came back afterwards to work. He didn’t say anything. He went back to work. He was washing dishes.”
The passersby were praised for their actions by the Queen, Boris Johnson and Sadiq Khan as footage of the terrifying encounter was released.
Khan, from Staffordshire, was known to authorities and was convicted in 2012 for terrorism offences. He was released from jail on licence last December and wore a fake suicide jacket during Friday’s shocking attack in the capital.
Khan had attended an event on Friday afternoon at Fishmonger’s Hall called “Learning Together.” Police said the attack began inside the hall before Khan fled onto London Bridge, where he was shot dead.
The suspected knifeman was a guest at a Cambridge University conference on prisoner rehabilitation when he threatened to blow up the historic Fishmongers’ Hall.
