Man arrested after vicious knife attack on Edmonton police officer

Man arrested after vicious knife attack on Edmonton police officer

They said he stabbed a police officer and hit several pedestrians with a auto in the western city of Edmonton. "The canadian police survey on Sunday on what it described as already" act of terrorism" before the intervention of the Prime minister.

An Islamic State flag was found inside the Malibu, Rod Knecht, police chief of Edmonton, said.

Late on Saturday, a auto crashed into a police barricade near Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, after which the driver approached a policeman and stabbed him several times.

The driver is then seen getting out of the auto and appears to stab the officer multiple times before fleeing.

Police investigate at the scene where a man hit pedestrians, then flipping the U-Haul truck he was driving, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Oct. 1, 2017.

"It is believed at this time that these two incidents are related", Chief Knecht said. The officer was hospitalized but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening. The condition of the pedestrians were not immediately known.

The person is believed to have acted alone, although police are not ruling out involvement by others, Mr Knecht said.

Hours later, the suspect took police on a wild chase through the city's downtown in a rented van as he tried to mow down pedestrians, before the vehicle was knocked over and the driver was apprehended.

Trudeau said Sunday that he was deeply concerned and outraged at what he called a "terrorist attack".

Police said the van intentionally swerved at pedestrians at crosswalks throughout the chase. A 30-year-old suspect is in custody.

Goodale's office issued a statement to say the RCMP's Integrated National Security Enforcement Team was working closely with Edmonton police.

The vehicle struck the EPS officer, sending him flying 15 feet through the air, before colliding with the officer's cruiser, again at a high rate of speed.

Trudeau said the attack is an example of "the hate that we must remain ever vigilant against".

Police chased the U-Haul truck, which ultimately tipped over.

Just before midnight, police pulled over a rental U-Haul truck and noticed the name on the driver's licence was similar to that of the white Malibu.

Edmonton police are scheduled to give an update on the case at 3 p.m. local time.
