Police in Quebec City arrested a man on suspicion of killing two people and injuring five others in a stabbing rampage near the provincial legislature – the National Assembly – on Halloween.

The man, in his mid-20s, was arrested on Saturday in connection with the Halloween-night attacks and taken to a hospital “for evaluation”, police spokesman Etienne Doyon said.

Police earlier warned residents to remain indoors as they hunted for the attacker, who was dressed in medieval clothing and armed with a bladed weapon and left “multiple victims”.

The five injured victims were taken to a hospital, and a spokeswoman said their lives did not appear to be in danger.

There is no word on a possible motive for the attacks.

“On behalf of the Quebec City police, I want to offer my sincerest condolences to the loved ones and families of the people who died today,” Doyon said.
