Jihad Watch : There is no detail as to who this man was in this article or any
other about this incident. It may just be some madman who attacked
police. Or it could be another jihad attack, and another media whitewash
of the motives and identity of the attacker.
“The moment police officers take down a man as he viciously attacks
them with a sword on Upper Chorlton Road,” by John Scheerhout, Manchester Evening News, March 25, 2018:
Shocking video shows the moment police officers take down a man with a sword. It shows the knifeman, 23, running from an alleway with a 3ft sword before being confronted by uniformed officers.

The drama happened on Upper Chorlton Road in Whalley Range shortly before 3pm on Sunday. Upper Chorlton Road was closed this afternoon as GMP started an investigation.

mobile phone, said: “I saw a man running across the road with what
seemed to me to be a 3ft sword. Police were everywhere.
“He had run into somebody’s front garden and these police officers
dragged him out but he’s gone for the officers. They were hitting him
but you can see from the video he is still attacking them when he’s on
the floor. “I think the officers did quite well. They were very professional.
It’s a shame they got hurt in the process. What they did was good. “One of the ladies passing by was quite shaken up. She couldn’t believe it had just happened.” Another resident, who declined to be named, said: “I came out of the
shop and I could hear shouting. The coppers just Tasered the guy.
“I could see two of the coppers were bleeding quite heavily. One had
blood on his face. I could see the machete on the ground. The man was on
the floor crying and shouting….
