Two people were killed and five wounded by a suspect dressed in medieval clothing.

Police in Quebec City arrested a man on suspicion of killing two people and injuring five others in a stabbing rampage near the provincial legislature on Halloween.


The man, in his mid-20s, was arrested on Saturday in connection with the Halloween-night attacks and taken to a hospital “for evaluation”, police spokesman Etienne Doyon said.

A male suspect is in custody after two people were killed and five others injured in a stabbing attack Saturday night in Quebec City, reported CNN partner CBC News.

According to preliminary reports, the suspect was wearing medieval dress, the Quebec City Police Service said in a post on Twitter.

The five injured victims were transported to local hospitals with different levels of injury and the suspect was taken to the hospital for evaluation, police spokesperson Étienne Doyon said, according to CBC News.
Doyon would not say whether the attacks were random and did not identify the victims out of respect for the families, CBC News reported.

The attacks happened in Old Quebec, Doyon said. Police asked citizens to avoid the Parliament Hill area following the attacks as they searched for the suspect, according to the post.
Shortly after 1 a.m. local time, police said the suspect had been arrested in a post and asked citizens to stay indoors with their doors locked as they continued to search the area.
