Knifeman ‘shouts Allahu Akbar after stabbing a police officer and two others’ in Manchester station rampage: Anti-terror police quiz man for attempted murder after taking suspect down with Tasers
At least three people were stabbed in the attack at the city centre transport hub, including one British Transport Police officer and two members of the public who are currently receiving treatment in hospital.
The attacker was said to have been armed with a ‘long kitchen knife’ and was pepper sprayed and tasered before being arrested by police officers, who were quickly on the scene.
BBC journalist Sam Clack who came within touching distance of the attacker said he heard the man shout ‘Allah’ as he launched the terrifying frenzy. According to Mr Clack, one of the police officers then tried to taser the attacker, but missed, before another officer pepper-sprayed the man and ‘six or seven policemen’ took him to the ground (main).
