    Another Very Ugly: Bus passenger beheaded seat mate - Canada....merged

    Bus passenger beheaded seat mate, witness says - CNN.com

    (CNN) -- As horrified travelers watched, a Greyhound Canada bus passenger repeatedly stabbed and then decapitated the young man sitting beside him, who was sleeping with his head leaning against the window, a witness said Thursday.

    Police officers and cars surround the bus near Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, on Wednesday night.

    "There was a blood-curdling scream. I was just reading my book, and all of a sudden I heard it," said Garnet Caton, who was sitting in front of the two men.

    "It was like something between a dog howling and a baby crying, I guess you could say. I don't think it will leave me for a while."

    Caton said he shouted at the other passengers, many of whom also were sleeping, to leave. Watch Caton describe what he saw »

    "Everybody got off the bus. Me and a trucker that stopped and the Greyhound driver ran up to the door to maybe see if the guy was still alive or we could help or something like that," Caton told CNN.

    "And when we all got up, we saw that the guy was cutting off the guy's head. ... When he saw us, he came back to the front of the bus, told the driver to shut the door. He pressed the button and the door shut, but it didn't shut in time, and the guy was able to get his knife out and take a swipe at us," Caton said.

    The incident happened late Wednesday west of Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, but a standoff between the attacker and police lasted into early Thursday.

    The bus was traveling along the Trans-Canada Highway from Edmonton, Alberta, to Winnipeg, Manitoba, and was about 45 minutes from its destination when the attack occurred, said Greyhound spokeswoman Abby Wambaugh in Dallas, Texas.

    Witnesses told Canadian TV that the attacker was wielding a butcher-type knife. They said the trucker who stopped provided wrenches and crowbars to several of the men, who were able to keep the suspect on the bus until police came. After the standoff, police took the man into custody.

    Wambaugh declined to comment further, except to "confirm that there was an incident on one of our buses."

    "I don't want to compromise the investigation," she told CNN.

    The incident occurred on the first of two Greyhound Canada buses that were traveling together, she said. The bus was carrying 37 passengers. As many passengers as possible among those not directly involved in the incident were transferred to the second bus, she said.

    Others were taken to a hotel in Brandon, where they were met by Greyhound managers and police, Wambaugh said.

    Once they are released, Greyhound will take them by bus to Winnipeg, and "we will do whatever is required to help them -- and that includes counseling," she added.

    Who needs a gun on a bus...and in Canada where guns are illegal no less. Someday folks might learn. Doubtful though.

    What a freak, I always knew Greyhound transferred the who's who in mental illness but this is over the top.

    Sucks that he will probably be labeled unfit to stand trial, cause who in their right mind would/could do such a thing. He will be sent to some Canadian loony farm to pick boogers instead of rot in a real prison or fry for what he did.

    Fry? Wishful thinking although well intended. Canada doesn't even like to deport U.S. citizens if they'll face the death penalty at home. I think they abolished in 1976 and haven't gotten around to pulling their heads out of their rears yet.

    Well, it's a good thing they banned handguns--this could have ended badly! <sheesh>

    Fox news reported on this and said when he walked to the front of the bus he had the victims head under his arm!

    I wonder if this was Jihad related? Like the Nick Berg deal.

    May have been personal?? maybe they knew each other??
