Azad Maidan police on Wednesday arrested a 50-year-old Kenyan for allegedly assaulting eight pedestrians in Parsi Bawdi near the Bombay High Court with a knife.
Defendant was identified as John Menty.
According to police, eight people are out of danger. The attacker, who also suffered injuries to his arm, was admitted to JJ Hospital.
Four of the injured were taken to JJ Hospital while four others were admitted to GT Hospital.
“Only one in eight people sustained serious neck injuries. Some will be released, ”said one official.
Police say the incident happened around 4:15 p.m.
Police are trying to determine if Menty had been using drugs or alcohol when she became violent after an argument with her boyfriend.
“He attacked eight people and later the residents present informed the police control room, and then the team went to the scene to control the situation,” one official said.
Menty even tried to attack the police, but the soldiers managed to defeat him and take him to the police station.
