The attackers allegedly called him an “infidel dog” – and both are now being hunted after fleeing from the scene.
The couple are said to have suddenly appeared on the soup kitchen premises and ‘for no apparent reason’ the male attacker – described as being of African origin – swung at him with the axe which the victim managed to dodge.
The woman – said to be wearing a veil with an open face – then dealt him “several stab wounds” to the stomach.
