The Manchester (U.K.) Evening News is reporting that three people, including an officer with British Transport Police, have been stabbed in a knife attack at Manchester’s Victoria station.

The attacker has been arrested and the victims taken to the hospital.

The Manchester Evening News reports:

Sam Clack, a BBC producer, was on a platform at Manchester Victoria railway station waiting for a tram when he witnessed the attack.

British Transport Police (BTP) confirmed three people, including a police officer, was injured in the stabbing.

Mr Clack, 38, said: “I just heard this most blood curdling scream and looked down the platform.

“What it looked like was a guy in his 60s with a woman of similar age and another guy all dressed in black.

“It looked like they were having a fight but she was screaming in this blood curdling way.

“I saw police in high-viz come towards him.

“He came towards me. I looked down and saw he had a kitchen knife with a black handle with a good, 12 inch blade.

“It was just fear, pure fear.”

Mr Clack, on his way to catch a tram home, said police officers used a Taser and pepper spray before, “six or seven” officers jumped on the man.

Mr Clack, who is from Newcastle but is working in Manchester for the BBC, said as the suspect was held down, he said: “As long as you keep bombing other countries this sort of shit is going to keep happening.”
