Vancouver man charged in apparent random stabbing attacks



A Vancouver man has been charged after he allegedly ran through the hallways of an apartment building with a knife randomly stabbing women and men, police said.

A police officer was also assaulted when the suspect was arrested in an apartment suite in the West End neighbourhood after 7 p.m. Thursday, cops said.

Officers originally discovered seven injured victims on several floors of the building. One man was treated at the scene, and the other six were taken to hospital. Two people remain in hospital, including one woman in her 20s who is still in very serious condition, police said late Friday.

Police said the man is believed to have been staying with a friend in the building.

Jerome Bonneric, 33, is charged with four counts of aggravated assault, four counts of assault with a weapon, three counts of common assault and assaulting a police officer.

Bonneric remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
