A member of parliament in the United Kingdom, Stephen Timms of the Labour Party, has been stabbed, the party press office said Friday.
Timms was taken to a London hospital where his condition was described as "not life threatening," the press office said.
Police said a 21-year-old woman was taken into custody. Timms has represented West Ham since 1994.
"Police believe there were a number of people who wanted to discuss constituency matters," Brunt said. "According to the source she was talking to the MP, she had clearly been let in to see him. "She then leant over and stabbed him in the stomach. According to the source, Mr Timms was stabbed twice in the abdomen." Brunt added: "It appears it was the first political surgery since the election. Officers believe there were a number of witnesses to what happened."
