LONDON — A woman was beheaded by a man in North London on Thursday during a machete-wielding rampage through a series of suburban backyards that also included an attack on a pet cat.

Police officers cornered the 25-year-old suspect in a large house after evacuating neighbors who heard there was a “madman on the loose.” At least one Metropolitan Police officer was injured during the struggle to subdue the man. The suspect was Tasered before being arrested on suspicion of murder, and taken to hospital.

Other potential victims fled the area, as a man smashed down fences as he charged from yard to yard and attacked a driver in a car, breaking the side window.
