A 28-year-old man suspected of being the perpetrator of the stabbing attack that left one person dead and six injured in Vancouver on Saturday was formally charged with murder Sunday, police said.

 

The suspect's name is Yannick Bandaogo and his possible links to the victims remain to be clarified, police said in a statement, without providing any indication of the possible motives behind the attacks

 

The police had announced the day before that he had had a run-in with them in the past. The man underwent surgery for self-inflicted wounds and remains in jail, the source said.

 

The woman who died in the attack, aged about 20, has not been identified.

 

Early Saturday afternoon, a quiet North Vancouver neighbourhood was the scene of a sudden outbreak of violence. A man armed with a knife stabbed several people, randomly according to some witnesses, in and around the public library.

 

He was quickly apprehended by Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officers after apparently stabbing himself in the leg and collapsing to the ground, according to video footage shown by several media outlets.

 

Six people suffered stab wounds of varying severity and were transported to the hospital for emergency, non-life threatening treatment, police said.
