Hawzah News Agency - Friday’s noon prayers were interrupted at a northeast Calgary mosque by a man brandishing a knife. Attendee Zouhair Osman said prayers got underway just before noon.

“About 10 minutes into it, I heard a noise in the back,” Osman told Global News. “It was a man swinging a knife at people in the prayers.”

“So I went, moved everybody out of the way, tried to calm him down, took a few minutes to try to calm him down.

Police said they responded to the Akram Jomaa Islamic Centre on 37 Ave N.E. after receiving a call around 12:10 p.m. to try to apprehend the man.

The man was arrested and taken to hospital with minor injuries.

While taking the man into custody, witnesses and CPS said officers used their less-lethal ARWEN launcher, which can fire 37-mm plastic, wood or foam rounds, along with tear gas and smoke.
