A pregnant woman has been violently slashed while trying to stop three men from stabbing her stomach in a brutal attack in Kilburn.

The 36-year-old woman, who is six-months pregnant, was attacked in Buckley Road as she walked home from work on Monday at 7.15pm.

Police believe the violent trio followed her as she walked from Kilburn Tube Station before grabbing her from behind.

One of them pulled out a knife and began to jab the blade into her stomach.

She received cuts to her hand while trying to hold back the three inch brass coloured knife which had a serrated edge.

The woman screamed and shouted before they let go and walked off towards the High Road.
