Horrified bus riders watch man brutally kill passenger
Witnesses say attacker, victim didn't know each other

BRANDON, Man. - Screaming passengers fled in terror from a Greyhound bus as an unidentified fellow passenger suddenly stabbed a man sleeping next to him, decapitated him and waved the severed head at horrified witnesses standing outside.

The apparently unprovoked assault left 36 men, women and children stranded Wednesday night on the shoulder of the darkening Trans-Canada Highway near Portage la Prairie, Man., about 85 kilometres west of Winnipeg, watching while the bus driver and a driver of a nearby truck shut the crazed attacker inside the bus with the mangled victim.

At a media conference yesterday afternoon, RCMP confirmed they have a suspect -- who is not believed to be from Manitoba -- in custody, but offered few new details about this baffling homicide. The suspect is expected to be formally charged today.


By the time the police arrived, the driver and the remaining passengers had all safely exited the bus," said Sgt. Steve Colwell.

He said officers could see the man walking around inside the bus, but said he refused to exit. The standoff lasted for hours.

The names of the victim and the suspect have not been released.

"He didn't do anything to provoke the guy. The guy just took a knife out and stabbed him, started stabbing him like crazy and cut his head off," said Garnet Caton, 36, a passenger on the bus.

"Some people were puking, some people were crying, other people were in shock ... everybody was running, screaming off the bus."

Mr. Caton said the attacker was only on the Edmonton-to-Winnipeg bus for a brief period of time, after boarding in western Manitoba.

Witnesses described a nightmarish scene inside the bus.

"Everybody got off the bus. Me and a trucker that stopped, and the Greyhound driver, ran up to the door to maybe see if the guy was still alive or we could help or something like that," Mr. Caton told CNN.

"And when we all got up, we saw that the guy was cutting off the guy's head. ... When he saw us, he came back to the front of the bus, told the driver to shut the door. He pressed the button and the door shut, but it didn't shut in time, and the guy was able to get his knife out and take a swipe at us.

"He hadn't got off the bus, and the door was still open ... he started walking to the front of the bus with the head in his hand and he just looked at us like this -- and dropped it on the ground, totally calm ...

"I got sick after I saw the head thing."

Mr. Caton said he and other passengers prevented the attacker from getting off by threatening him with makeshift weapons -- a hammer and a crowbar.

"We were telling him, 'Stay put, stay put, stay there, don't try to come out.' He tried to get the bus working and the bus driver disabled the bus somehow in the back, I'm not sure how he did it, and at that point, I think the police showed up," he said, adding that officers rushed them away.

Mr. Caton and other passengers said the attacker and his victim, who was listening to music on headphones, were sitting together at the rear of the bus, and the attack appeared to be unprovoked -- no words were exchanged.

Mr. Caton described the attacker as about six feet tall, 200 pounds, possibly Asian or aboriginal, bald and wearing sunglasses. He seemed oblivious to others when the stabbing occurred, said Mr. Caton, adding he was struck by how calm the man was.

Mr. Caton said the victim boarded in Edmonton, was possibly aboriginal, wearing hip-hop clothing and appeared to be about 20 years old.

"When we saw the head, we knew he was dead," he said. "I don't think the guy knew him at all. I think he was really crazy ... the poor guy, he didn't see it coming."

The passengers were later taken to Brandon to be interviewed by police and to stay overnight at a hotel. Some were to resume their trips yesterday.

Crisis counsellors were also at the hotel to provide support to the passengers, and counsellors could be seen chatting with them outside the hotel as groups went out to stores for snacks or cigarettes.

One small boy, who was with an adult man and woman, was given a plush teddy bear by a crisis health worker.

Another young man from Nova Scotia sat outside the Brandon hotel, smoking at about 3 a.m. Visibly shaken, he said the RCMP had taken 36 witnesses in for questioning at a detachment about 100 kilometres east.

"I felt bad that all the young people and old people had to see that," he said.

"The first thing I heard was something like a terrible type (of) yowl, and that was from the guy who got stabbed," said an elderly Winnipeg woman on the bus,.

The woman and her adult daughter said they were three or four rows in front of the suspect when the attack began.

"(My daughter said) 'Oh my God,' and everybody else started screaming," she said. "They had terror in their eyes."

Speaking in Quebec City, Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day said the issue of safety on buses may need to be examined more closely.

"We're never closed to looking at how Canadians can be more safe and more secure," Mr. Day said yesterday. "This particular incident, as horrific as it is, is obviously extremely rare."

Greyhound spokesman Eric Wesley, speaking from Texas, said drivers are trained to get help as soon as they can when incidents occur.

"This is a very rare, unique occurrence. Bus transportation is one of the safest modes of transportation," he said. "Our drivers are trained to provide the safest travel for all our passengers, and every time an incident occurs, they know to pull the bus over and call 911."

The Greyhound bus spokesman said counselling will be provided and monetary compensation will be determined on an individual basis.

加拿大晚間長巴發生駭人慘案,一名男子在車上用刀狂刺鄰座的男子,割下死者的頭顱,並取出他的內臟。(圖:美聯社)
(加拿大‧渥太華)一名乘坐巴士橫越加拿大西部平原的乘客,在車上用刀狂刺鄰座的男子,將他刺死後,割下死者的頭顱,並取出他的內臟。兇手事後還提著頭顱嘲弄警方。

事情發生在週三(7月30日)晚上9時(大馬時間週四早上10時),在從埃德蒙頓朝東駛往溫尼伯的一輛長途巴士上。

目擊者卡頓告訴加拿大廣播公司(CBC),受害者年約18歲,當時正戴著耳機睡覺。他被鄰座男乘客(40歲)用大藍波刀在其胸口狂刺多刀。

司機乘客嚇慌奪門逃

他說,車上其餘34名乘客及司機都被令人毛骨悚然的慘叫聲嚇得慌成一團,趕緊奪門逃下巴士,並閂上車門,將兇手困在巴士內。

卡頓說:他一定刺了受害者有五六十下。

當卡頓及另兩人返回查看受害者的情況時,赫然發現兇手將死者的頭顱割下,並取出內臟。

他說:在我們注視下,他冷靜的走到巴士前面的位置,手上拿著受害人的頭顱和刀子,冷靜的瞪著我們,並將頭顱丟在我們面前。

提著頭顱逗弄警方

他補充:他看來並不憤怒,也沒有罵髒話或咒罵或甚麼的,他看來只是一個機器人之類的東西。

官員披露,警方不久後趕抵現場包圍巴士,雙方僵持了近3小時才逮捕了這名男子。官員說:他提著頭顱伸出窗外逗弄警方。

破窗跳下巴士被捕

加拿大皇家騎警表示,警方正在調查這起重大案件,但公佈的細節不多。

皇家騎警警官科爾韋爾在新聞發佈會上說,巴士停在一條荒涼的公路旁,一名40歲男子從巴士破窗跳出時被捕。

公共安全部長戴伊稱這起攻擊事件令人驚恐。
