Man with Islamic State flag plows car, U-Haul van into Canadian cop and pedestrians during rampage
During a press conference early Sunday morning, Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht said the 30-year-old man who led police on a auto chase Saturday night is now in custody, also adding that police seized an ISIS flag from his vehicle.
It all began Saturday night outside the Edmonton Eskimos CFL football game at Commonwealth Stadium where it was military appreciation night. The officer was outside his vehicle, which had its lights flashing to improve visibility.
A driver of a Malibu Chevrolet crashed through traffic barricades at 8.15pm.
The knife attack ignited a wild search for the violent suspect in the province's capital before police say preluded a second assault involving a vehicle - and the same driver.
- The police officer's injuries are not critical.
"There is nothing that has come to their attention to this point that would lead them to believe that the threat level needs to be adjusted", Goodale said.
The suspect then drove off at speed and rammed through the police checkpoint, triggering a high-speed chase through the downtown area, packed with Saturday night crowds.

Shortly afterwards, a van driver rammed into four pedestrians at least. There is no information on their condition.
Based on the actions and the evidence at the scene, the incidents were being investigated as "acts of terrorism", police said in a statement.

Knecht said police did not call off the chase of the U-Haul due to the seriousness of the crime. No updates have been provided on the pedestrians struck.
Austin Elgie, manager of The Pint bar just west of the downtown core, said the truck hit a person in the alley outside his establishment.
