    Northern Irish teen on trip to Manchester among 3 knifed in stabbing frenzy

    "Terrified families described a machete-wielding attacker "running and lunging" at shoppers.

    Two women, including a 19-year-old, were rushed to hospital with stab wounds, along with a man in his 50s. They are all in a stable condition.

    A fourth woman was assessed by paramedics at the scene for shock.

    A friend of the 19-year-old Northern Irish stabbing victim posted online following the horror ordeal and said they were "so shook" following the attack.

    She said: "All we wanted to do was come over to Manchester for a girly weekend but instead the first shopping centre we step into this happens.

    "We’re all so shook and can’t for the life of us understand how someone could be so low to do this," she said.

    The pal added she "can't get that man's face and knife" out of her head.

    She said her injured friend "is on the mend" and they hope to return home in the coming days.

    'TERROR' ARREST
    The 41-year-old man, believed to be British and from Manchester, was confronted by two hero unarmed PCSOs and arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation and instigation of an act of terrorism.

    Greater Manchester Police said the "investigation will continue in order to fully understand the motives behind the attack."

    People praised for 'intervening' in Arndale attack
    "Assistant Chief Constable Russ Jackson, from Greater Manchester Police, said: "We know that at least one member of staff from the Arndale and a member of the public intervened in the attack and we would like to praise and thank them for their bravery."

    At a press conference earlier, police revealed they had searched a property in the city where the suspect lived.

    Officers said they were trying to establish if he had any political, religious or ideological motivation for the attack, although nothing has so far has come to light.

    The 40-year-old man, from Manchester, was initially arrested on suspicion of assault and then re-arrested on suspicion of terror offences before he was detained under the Mental Health Act.

    Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham said officials were keeping an "open mind".
    "The force has appealed for anyone who was in the Arndale at the time to send images or footage via its website."
