One person was stabbed at a property in Westbourne Road and three others were attacked near a bus stop.

Police say they generally discourage the public from intervening but greatly appreciate those who apprehended the offender until he arrived on the scene.

Police today said in a statement that the community could be reassured that the violent rampage was an isolated incident.
