The second suspect in the massacre that killed ten people on an Indian reservation in Canada was detained by police this Wednesday, said Canadian authorities who had already located the body of the other involved in the stabbings on Monday.
The arrest came shortly after police announced that a suspicious person, armed with a knife, had stolen a car in a small rural town in the northwest of the country. “Myles Sanderson was located and taken into custody near Rosthern, Saskatchewan at approximately 3:30 pm (8:30 pm in Lisbon),” the Canadian Mounted Police said.
A source connected to the process told the Associated Press (AP) that the vehicle in which Sanderson was following was rammed by the police and he surrendered.
Several agents of the Mounted Police have traveled in recent days to the James Smith Cree Nation Indian Reservation, where the stabbings took place on Sunday, in an attempt to find Myles Sanderson, after receiving information about his possible presence in that community.
Police did not reveal possible motives for the attacks, but an indigenous leader in Saskatchewan linked them to the wave of violence and drug use in the community.
Canadian authorities consider Myles Sanderson, 30, and his brother Damien Sanderson, 31, suspects in the multiple stabbings that killed 10 people and wounded 18 others in James Smith Cree Nation and the nearby town of Weldon.
On Monday, security forces located the body of Damien Sanderson on the Indian reservation, saying he died from injuries inflicted by another person.
Myles Sanderson has been wanted since May 2022 for failing to meet the conditions of his parole.
The suspect now detained was sentenced to five years in prison for assault, robbery, malicious conduct and threats, but, after being released to serve parole, disappeared.
