No 'terrorism' charges for now in Edmonton attack

No 'terrorism' charges for now in Edmonton attack

The suspect fled on foot, leaving a flag of the armed Islamic group in his vehicle, police confirmed.

Around 8:15 p.m. on Saturday, Const. Mike Chernyk was working on traffic duty southwest of Commonwealth Stadium during the Edmonton Eskimos football game when a Chervolet Malibu rammed through the barricade and slammed into Chernyk.

Subsequently, a van was stopped at a checkpoint, and the name of the driver appeared to be similar to the name of the registered owner of the auto that hit the officer.

Knecht says the driver of the vehicle then got out and "viciously" stabbed the officer several times with a knife before fleeing.

He remains in custody, while the officer and four pedestrians are treated for their injuries.

The crime spree began on Saturday evening outside a football stadium in the western city of Edmonton and ended hours later when the suspect's U-Haul rental truck flipped onto its side with police in hot pursuit.

The Edmonton Police Service is investigating a vicious attack on a police officer as "acts of terrorism". Degrand said he was flagged in 2015 for extremist ideologies, and police interviewed him at the time, but he said charges were not warranted after an "exhaustive investigation".

Uber Rival Lyft Has Been Cosying up With London Transport Officials
While the London mayor was responding to a petition by charge.org, he noted that Uber has 21 days to appeal the decision by TFL. Meanwhile, a petition demanding that Mr Khan reverse the licensing decision reached 750,0000 signatures.

The person is believed to have acted alone, although police are not ruling out involvement by others, Mr Knecht said. He also is charged with one count each of risky operation of a motor vehicle and possession of a weapon for a unsafe goal, according to a charge information sheet filed in Edmonton provincial court.

In March 2016, a Canadian who said he was acting on orders of Allah attacked two soldiers with a knife at a recruitment centre in Toronto.

Edmonton police Insp. Carlos Cardoso was asked by reporters why authorities did not broadcast the name and details of the suspect to the general public after Chernyk was attacked, given the incident had the earmarks of a terrorist attack and happened near a major sporting event.

At the Al Rashid Mosque - Canada's oldest mosque, built in 1938, and Edmonton's largest - outreach Imam Sadique Pathan said he is horrified by the weekend attack, but also concerned about backlash against the city's 100,000 Muslims. It was insane. It just came around the corner, ripping.

"The complexities of a terrorism investigation are vast", she said.

"We can not - and will not - let violent extremism take root in our communities", Mr. Trudeau said.

"I have a registered nurse on my bar team and I grabbed her and had her look after the guy until the ambulance came".
