COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Eight people were injured by a male suspect in an apparent random stabbing rampage near downtown Colorado Springs, police said Monday.
The suspect was restrained by some of his victims and arrested before dawn by officers, police said in a statement.
Some of the victims were attacked on streets and some were found injured in the city’s America the Beautiful Park over the course of about a halfhour, police said. After responding to the stabbing of two people at around 1:30 a.m., officers found several more victims on walking trails through the park as they searched for the suspect.
Police said seven victims were taken to a hospital and five were released. The eighth victim’s condition was unclear.
