COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) – A man is in custody after going on a stabbing spree around downtown Colorado Springs early Monday morning.

In the span of about half an hour, police say the attacker stabbed eight people in multiple locations along trails near I-25. He was reportedly taken into custody when some of his victims were able to turn the tables and hold him until officers arrived.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Officers and medical personnel respond there. … The two victims stated that they were attacked and then [the suspect] ran off down the trail,” CSPD Sgt. Shawn Peterson told 11 News.

While officers were following the trails, they came upon more victims who had been randomly stabbed as the attacker fled.

“Everywhere he was going, he was trying to come in contact with people and he was injuring them,” one officer said.

All victims survived, and the suspect was finally apprehended, but has not been identified.
