South Yorkshire Police said a 28-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
A market trader has been hailed a hero after he faced down a woman brandishing a foot-long knife who stabbed a man in a town centre as terrified shoppers scattered.
Abdul Razzaq, 43, confronted the woman after she produced a huge kitchen knife in Barnsley town centre and shouted “kill, kill, kill, kill” as she stabbed one man in the shoulder and then walked around the busy streets.
Mr Razzaq followed the 6ft-tall woman, who was dressed in Muslim clothes but did not have her face covered, and alerted police to where she was in the town’s railway station.
He said he then convinced her to put down the knife before police officers grabbed her and made the arrest.
South Yorkshire Police confirmed they arrested a 28-year-old woman on suspicion of attempted murder and said she is being assessed from a mental health perspective.
