The women were apparently targeted at random

A mother and daughter are in a critical condition after a “horrific” hammer attack in south-east London.

Scotland Yard said the women, aged 64 and 30, suffered injuries “consistent with a violent assault” at Adderley Gardens, Greenwich, at about 12:10 BST.

Joe Xuereb, 27, who lives locally, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in Sidcup on Saturday evening.

The women, who did not know Mr Xuereb, are being treated at hospitals in south London.

A hammer believed to have been used in the attack was recovered from the scene, police said.

Neighbour Bob Gover, 69, called an ambulance for the two women.

The retired TV engineer said: “I heard a bit of a commotion, I looked outside and there was about half a dozen people out there.

“I went out there and I saw blood on the face of one of them and I knew something had happened so I ran inside and phoned for an ambulance.

“They were both covered in blood.”
