An off duty police officer called 999 after witnessing the harrowing stabbings which took the lives of three people who were enjoying an evening in the park on Saturday 21st June.
Khairi Saadallah is charged with three counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder following the incident.
Saadallah did not enter a plea when he appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court earlier today.
He spoke only to confirm his name and address.
Saadallah, who moved to the UK from Libya as a refugee in 2012, is alleged to have turned towards one group of friends sitting on the grass, stabbing four of them, before turning to another group of five friends sitting nearby, stabbing two of them, one in the back and one in the cheek.
James Furlong, 36, Joe Ritchie-Bennett, 39 and David Wails, 49, were all killed in the attack.
Saadallah is also charged with attempting to murder their friend Stephen Young as well as Patrick Edwards and Nishit Nisudan.
They have all since been released from the hospital, according to The Telegraph
Thames Valley Police officers were praised for their outstanding bravery when they detained Saadallah.
A Thames Valley Police Sergeant managed to rugby tackle Saadallah to the ground.
Saadallah was questioned under Section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000, before being charged on Saturday.
