      Vancouver police say that a man remains in custody in connection with alleged machete attacks late Saturday (August 6) in a rooming house above the Roxy cabaret.

      Ibrahim Abdela Bakhit, 48, faces four counts of aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

      None of the allegations against Bakhit have been proven in court.

      On the weekend, police shot an armed suspect after a man went on a violent rampage, which sent four victims to hospital with what the VPD calls "serious, life-altering injuries".

      The suspect was injured and was sent to hospital, according to police.
