A teenager has been charged with the attempted murder of a jogger who was repeatedly stabbed in a north London park.

The 39-year-old was attacked in Clissold Park, Stoke Newington, on 5 December.

A 15-year-old boy, from Finsbury Park, north London, was charged on Friday and will appear at Highbury Corner Youth Court on Saturday.

Police say the youth has no connection with the murder of another jogger Margaret Muller in nearby Victoria Park, Tower Hamlets, last February.

American artist Ms Muller, 27, was murdered while out jogging in Victoria Park on 3 February 2003, which is just three miles from Clissold Park.

The Clissold Park victim is now back at home after surgery on a severed artery.
