In suspected terrorist attack in Manchester, the knife-wielding attacker stabbed five people. In insane attack, a man ran around Manchester shopping center ‘lunging at people with a knife’. Citizens ran for cover and barricaded themselves into stores after the attacker swung a blade at random victims, knifing four women and a man near a Starbucks cafe at the city’s Arndale Centre.
In express police reaction, two unarmed police officers confronted and cornered the attacker before the officers with tasers knocked him out. One of the witnesses said he saw police take away a ’12-inch machete’. The attacker was arrested and taken into police custody. He was identified as a 41-year-old man from Greater Manchester. He is questioned by anti-terror officers on suspicion of ‘the commission, preparation and instigation of an act of terrorism’.
Soon, the video of the arrest emerged on social networks.
