A suspect in Zhumadian, Henan province was arrested on October 6 after he brandished a knife and attacked a number of children, Youth News reports.
Witnesses said that the suspect was tackled down and controlled passersby after he attacked the kids. He was handed to the police for further investigation.
The number of injured people and the suspect’s motives are yet to be confirmed.
This is just the latest incident in a recent string of knife attacks on children within the past month. Just over a week ago, four children on their way to school in Guangxi were fatally stabbed by an unidentified suspect. Earlier in September, a man stabbed three kids to death and injured several more before committing suicide at a Hubei province primary school. He was reportedly angry because the school hadn’t let his daughter register for new classes.
