Quebec stabbings leave at least 2 dead, 5 injured

Police in Quebec City arrested a man on suspicion of killing two people and injuring five others in a stabbing rampage near the provincial legislature on Halloween.

The man, in his mid-20s, was arrested on Saturday in connection with the Halloween-night attacks and taken to a hospital “for evaluation”, police spokesman Etienne Doyon said.

“It’s a man who was dressed medieval. It’s a man who carried a sword with him. It’s stab wounds – that’s all we can tell you at the moment,” said Doyon.

Police earlier warned residents to remain indoors as they hunted for the attacker, who was dressed in medieval clothing and armed with a bladed weapon and left “multiple victims”.

According to three witnesses quoted by Quebec newspaper Le Soleil, the attacker killed his first victim near the Chateau Frontenac hotel and there was “a lot of blood”.
