A mass stabbing at a bus stop has left multiple people injured and fighting for their lives.
On Thursday morning, a man armed with a large knife began randomly stabbing innocent people at a bus stop in Auckland, New Zealand.
According to the local reports, the suspect stabbed several people at the North Shore bus stop before he was subdued by brave construction workers.
After the police arrived at the scene, the man was arrested and taken into custody. The police also recovered a large knife the suspect used in the stabbing spree.
While one witness claimed the stabbings were completely random, an onlooker who owns a nearby café said he saw a female getting attacked with a knife before the suspect launched his knife at a couple.
Another eyewitness recalled walking her dog down to the beach when the knifeman approached her.
“And – fight or flight – I turned away and ran the other way and I looked back and he had a big knife, running at me,” she said in an interview with NZ Herald.
“I was screaming, calling out for help because he was chasing me with this big knife.”
Recalling the terrifying incident was also Dianne Hilbourne who initially thought a tsunami was to blame for the panic and screaming that erupted along the shore.
“At first I thought it was a tsunami, or something like because we’re at the beach. We just left everything and ran,” she told Stuff.
One local resident went on to recall the moment the suspect “burst into tears” after being apprehended by members of the public.
As the resident claimed, the suspect appeared to be a male in his 20s.
As of this writing, the police have yet to identify the suspect and confirm how many people were injured and if any had died as a result of the mass stabbing.
