A man who apparently shouted “Allahu Akbar” attacked seven people in the French city of Toulouse on Wednesday before he was captured, according to reports.
Police quickly responded to the attack on Avenue Frederic-Estebe, where they overpowered the man, who is well known to authorities, the Express of the UK reported.
“We were chatting and he jumped on us. He first caught my son and then beat my daughter. We ran,” one man told local media.
Two of the victims were taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
The suspect, who was not armed, is believed to have stayed in a psychiatric hospital before he was released in April.
He reportedly burst into tears when cops collared him, the paper reported.
Three officers suffered light injuries as they brought him down, the UK’s Daily Star reported.
