A mother has thanked her Crouch End customers for their “unbelievable” support after her son was stabbed during an attempted robbery at their family-owned store.
Now her 24-year-old son, Kartal, is safe and has come home from hospital.
Vesime, who asked for her last name not to be given, said: “I’m happy because he’s out, he’s well. We were all just pretending [to each other] we were all going to be okay.”
“We’ve had unbelievable support. People have come in with flowers and cards. They’ve been crying with me; hugging me. In Crouch End there are lots of caring people.”
“We’re happy - we’re going to keep the shop.”
