    He tried to stab six people, five of whom had to be taken to hospital for cuts which were not life-threatening. The sixth victim escaped without injury, after the knife failed to penetrate the clothing.

    The man then took off on foot. He was later arrested by authorities after police launched a major operation to track him down. Once he was detained, authorities said his clothes were covered in blood and he was clearly drunk, Le Parisien reported.

    Parts of the attacks were caught on CCTV cameras. Images of the attacker were distributed to all police units in the area as part of the operation. Officers monitoring surveillance screens were also able to track where he was heading.
