Suspect arrested in stabbing of 4 instructors from Iowa college in China, police say

Authorities in Jilin, northeastern China, have apprehended a suspect in connection with the stabbing of four US college instructors in a public park, local police announced on Tuesday.

 

The suspect, identified only by his last name, Cui, is a 55-year-old resident of the city's Longtan District. According to police, the incident occurred when Cui collided with a foreigner while walking in Beishan Park, a popular city-center green space. Subsequently, he stabbed the instructors and a Chinese tourist who intervened during the altercation.

 

Police responded to the incident after receiving a call at approximately 11:49 a.m. local time on Monday. They swiftly dispatched officers to the scene and transported the injured to the hospital for treatment. Fortunately, all injured parties have received appropriate medical care and are not in danger, authorities confirmed.

 

The injured individuals, affiliated with Cornell College, a private liberal arts college in Mount Vernon, Iowa, were participating in a partnership program with Beihua University in Jilin. Cornell College President Jonathan Brand stated that the college is in contact with the affected instructors and is providing them with assistance. He emphasized that no students were involved in the program.

 

Footage circulating on Chinese social media purportedly captured the aftermath of the attack, showing the victims lying on the ground surrounded by onlookers. Despite the severity of the incident, all victims appeared conscious and were communicating via cell phones.

 

One of the victims, identified as David Zabner, is reported to be "doing well" and is in recovery after receiving medical attention. The other three victims are also recovering, although their current health status has not been disclosed.

 

The stabbing incident has drawn significant attention and concern, both locally and internationally. Iowa officials and lawmakers have expressed shock and condemnation of the attack, with efforts underway to ensure the safe return of the affected individuals to the United States.

 

While knife attacks are not uncommon in China due to stringent gun controls, public assaults targeting foreigners are rare. The incident occurred amid China's efforts to enhance educational exchanges with the United States and attract international visitors following Covid-19 border restrictions.

 

China's Foreign Ministry assured that the country remains committed to protecting the safety of all foreigners within its borders and emphasized the importance of educational exchanges between China and the US.
