Canadian police arrested a Somalian man early Sunday suspected of stabbing an officer and deliberately ramming pedestrians during a high-speed chase in a rented truck, injuring four in what Prime Minister Justin Trudeau denounced as a "terrorist attack".
Canadian police said they were investigating violent attacks in Edmonton on Saturday night as "acts of terrorism" after a man hit a police officer with a auto and stabbed him and then later struck four pedestrians while driving a second vehicle.
Canadian Police say they are investigating possible acts of terrorism after multiple incidents in the capital city of Alberta province, reported the BBC.
A Somali-born refugee has been charged with five counts of attempted murder in connection with a weekend attack in Edmonton, Alberta.
Sharif, 30, is to make his first appearance Tuesday in provincial court on 11 charges, including five counts of attempted murder.
According to Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht, a flag of the terrorist group Daesh (ISIS) was found in the vehicle.
It started when a police officer handling crowd control at a football game was hit by a speeding vehicle that rammed through a barrier and sent him flying five metres through the air.
The driver then got out, pulled out a large knife and began stabbing him.
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.
"From all indications it appears that this was a single individual acting alone", said Knecht.
He has since been released from hospital and is recovering from stab wounds to the face and head.
He said the U-Haul then sped off toward downtown with police in pursuit. One person suffered a fractured skull and was initially in critical condition, but had since been upgraded to stable.
Outside, a white Chevrolet auto suddenly burst past a police barricade, hitting a policeman who was performing routine checks and propelling him a distance of several feet. A spokesman for the Public Safety Department has indicated that the national terrorism threat level for Canada has not changed since 2014 and remains at "medium". This raised doubts in the mind of the police and the driver sensed trouble.
Though targeted in a probe two years ago for promoting extremist ideology, Sharif was deemed to pose no threat after what the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) described on Sunday as an "exhaustive investigation". He fled the checkpoint, however, and was only arrested after careening across a downtown street and hitting four pedestrians.
