SEOUL, South Korea - Police in South Korea say eight people were stabbed or cut by a man wielding a box-cutter Saturday at a subway station just outside of the capital.
No one died in the 10-minute rampage and the injuries weren't life-threatening, according to three police officers who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to talk to the media. They said a man was arrested running away from the station in a Seoul suburb (Uijeongbu) that is home to U.S. and South Korean military bases.
Police identified the suspect as a 39-year-old man surnamed Yoo.
The Yonhap news agency quoted witnesses as saying that the suspect began stabbing people on a train and then on a station platform after a man and woman confronted him for spitting in the train.
