Man decapitated on Canadian bus

Download the report here:

A man has stabbed and decapitated a fellow passenger on a Canadian bus, displaying the head to horrified passengers, according to police and witnesses.

A 40-year-old man was taken into custody on a remote stretch of Canadian motorway about 20km from the town of Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, but has not been charged, Canadian police said on Thursday.

"All of a sudden, we all heard this scream, this bloodcurdling scream," said Garnet Caton, who was sitting just in front of the victim on the bus when the attacked occurred overnight on Wednesday.

Caton said that when the attack was over, the man displayed his victim's severed head to the other passengers.

"The attacker was standing up right over top of the guy with a large hunting knife - a survival, Rambo knife - holding the guy and continually stabbing him, stabbing him, stabbing him in the chest area," Caton told CBC Television.

'Like a robot'

The attack continued as other passengers fled the bus and waited for police, Caton said.

Caton said he, the driver and another passenger desperately tried to hold the bus door closed to prevent the attacker from leaving.

"He calmly walks up to the front [of the bus] with the head in his hand and the knife and just calmly stares at us and drops the head right in front of us," Caton said.

"There was no rage in him ... It was just like he was a robot or something."

Sergeant Steve Colwell of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said they apprehended the man when he broke a window and tried to escape from the bus by jumping out.

Passengers said the attacker did not seem to know the victim, who appeared to be about 19-years-old.

Some info from the Wikipedia article on the attack: The week following the attack, Greyhound Canada announced it was pulling a series of nationwide advertisements which included the line, "There's a reason you've never heard of bus rage." The incident has led to numerous calls and petitions demanding increased security on intercity buses.[23] On February 27, 2014, the CBC reported that on March 6, Li will be allowed to have unsupervised visits to Selkirk, starting at 30 minutes and expanding to full-day trips. Since 2013, he is allowed to have supervised visits to Lockport, Winnipeg, and nearby beaches. Those visits will be relaxed.[32] On July 17, 2014, the Toronto Sun reported that one of the first officers on the scene, Cpl. Ken Barker, an RCMP officer, had committed suicide.[33] The family stated in his obituary that he was suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder.[34]
