Paris knife attacker disarmed by passers-by after injuring 7

A security guard at one of two cinemas on either side of the Canal de l'Ourcq said he saw a man who had already assaulted people being chased by two other men who tried to stop him.

Seven people in Paris have been wounded by an attacker armed with a knife and an iron bar, according to reports.

Moments later, two British tourists were stabbed on Rue Henri Noguères, a nearby street, before the suspect was taken into custody by officers from the anti-crime brigade.

The attacker, reportedly in his 30s, was using child identity documents issued to an Afghan minor, according to claims made by an investigating source.

Anne Hidalgo wrote: "I extend my full support and wishes a speedy recovery to those injured six that night in the 19th arrondissement, in an attack".

Of the seven victims, four have been seriously wounded, after the man began his wild stabbing spree at 10:45pm with a knifing near a local cinema.

The alleged perpetrator has been arrested and the incident is not being treated as terrorism, police said.

Seven people were wounded in Paris on Sunday in a knife attack, which bystanders tried to stop by throwing petanque balls at the assailant. He was unconscious when he was arrested and taken to hospital.

On Twitter, French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb praised the "courage and reactivity" of those who intervened. We said to them: "'Watch out, he has a knife".

It is the latest of several knife attacks France has seen in recent weeks.

In June, a woman stabbed two people with a box cutter in a supermarket in Toulon.
