Officer stabbed, pedestrians hit in Canada in suspected 'acts of terrorism'

Mounties say the man accused of attacking a police officer and running down four pedestrians with a rental truck in a dramatic late-night downtown chase is a Somali refugee once investigated for espousing extremism.

Mr. Sharif is facing 11 charges, including five counts of attempted murder, five of risky driving causing bodily harm and one weapons offence.

I have written that the president's travel ban doesn't go far enough to do much good, but this is one example of a terrorist attack that the travel ban, if in effect when the terrorist sought to enter the US, would prevent.

A Somali refugee who attacked a policeman with a knife after striking him with his auto and then injured four others in a driving rampage in Edmonton, Alberta was charged with five counts of attempted murder Monday.

Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht said that officers took a suspect in custody and they think he acted alone.

Police arrested a 30-year-old Abdulahi Hasan Sharif after an officer was hit by a auto and repeatedly stabbed while he was working traffic control outside a CFL football game between the Edmonton Eskimos and Winnipeg Blue Bombers Saturday evening.

"A male, believed to be 30 years of age, then jumped out of his vehicle and began viciously stabbing the officer with a knife, as a struggle ensued", the statement added.

Knecht said the U-Haul was driving the wrong way and almost t-boned another vehicle before hitting four pedestrians on Jasper Avenue. Knecht said the truck deliberately hit four pedestrians.

Knecht said Chernyk has since been released from hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. "In fact, no shots were fired anywhere in this entire incident", said Knecht.

The count of terror that Knecht said on Sunday was among those Sharif was arrested under is not listed on the court document.

Investigators determined at that time that he did not pose a threat. One person suffered a fractured skull and was initially in critical condition, but had since been upgraded to stable.

The driver was later stopped at a checkpoint driving a U-Haul truck before taking off.

But Marlin Degrand, assistant commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, said the suspect was a Somali national seeking refugee status in Canada. Officers smashed through the windshield and tossed in a stun grenade to distract the driver.

Surveillance video released by police appears to depict the police officer wrestling with the driver on the ground. They tried to arrest him, but he resisted so they hit him with a Taser.
