The suspect was later sighted by police in a white U-Haul van and high-speed chase ensued through the crowded streets of downtown Edmonton.

Officers said pending charges included terrorism and five counts of attempted murder, but they did not reveal his name.

In 2015, due to reports of Islamic extremism brewing in the Edmonton Somali community, the RCMP counterterrorism unit interviewed Sharif, who was described as "espousing extremist ideology".

Mr Sharif is due to appear in an Edmonton court on 3 October.

A man driving a Chevrolet Malibu hit a police officer, got out of the vehicle and began stabbing the officer before fleeing the scene, Edmonton Police Service chief Rod Knecht said on Sunday.

According to police, a police officer controlling traffic at a Canadian Football League game was struck by a auto at high speed and then attacked with a knife multiple times by the driver who then fled abandoning the vehicle. While the two fought on the ground, Shaiff repeatedly stabbed Chernyk with what might have been a Bowie knife and then ran away from the scene on foot.

The crime spree began Saturday evening outside a football stadium in the western city of Edmonton and ended hours later when the suspect's U-Haul rental truck flipped onto its side with police in hot pursuit. "It's not critical", Knecht said.

The officer, who suffered serious stabbing wounds to his head, face, and arm, is expected to make a full recovery.

Knecht said the suspect drove in the opposite lane, nearly T-boned a vehicle and purposely drove into pedestrians, injuring four.

Witness Pat Hannigan told reporters that he saw police pull the man from the windshield of the toppled U-Haul.

"He was stabbed several times and he was able to fend off the attacker even after getting thrown through the air after being struck by the vehicle", said Det.

Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, 30, is accused of running down a police officer with his auto in Edmonton, Alberta, and then stabbing him repeatedly.

His rampage involving two vehicles injuring 5, one of which is a police officer who was doing traffic control for the game.

"He followed him for a little bit and radioed ahead to let them (police) know what had happened", said Walsh. A spokesman for the Public Safety Department has indicated that the national terrorism threat level for Canada has not changed since 2014 and remains at "medium". Police used a flashbang to distract the driver.

Two of the four pedestrians remain in hospital, one with a fractured skull.

A lone gunman, identified by police as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, fired shots into the crowd at a country music festival on the Vegas Strip, killing at least 50 and wounding at least 400 more late Sunday night.
