Apart from saying he was a man in his 30s, the police are keeping details of the knife man to themselves.
A knifeman broke an elderly woman’s leg and threatened tourists with two blades as he went on the rampage in Nice this afternoon.
The man, believed to be in his 30s, had to be overpowered by several police officers in the southwestern coastal city at around 4pm (3pm BST). Authorities have not declared the incident a terror attack.
French media reports that the perpetrator assaulted the woman on a street near the city’s harbour before being apprehended on the Promenade des Anglais by the waterfront.
