A source at the Bole District Police Command, who confirmed the incident to Graphic Online said it was the police who intervened to stop him from further attacks. 

Before the police intervention, he had forcibly entered another room where two children were asleep and stabbed them.

Another man who was resting in his compound was not spared in the attacking spree.

The deceased have since been buried while the injured are receiving treatment at the Bole Government Hospital.
