Police have one suspect in custody believed to be responsible for a random stabbing at a Regina, Sask. mall that injured four people.

Two Regina Police Service officers, who were patrolling the Cornwall Centre, reported the incident at about 6 p.m. Tuesday evening.

Police say a male youth entered the shopping centre and randomly attacked people around him, stating in a release that "there is no indication as to the suspect's motive at this point."

Officers at the scene were able to de-escalate the situation through discussion and take the youth into custody after he threw the knife towards them.

Three people were taken to hospital for treatment and one person was treated at the scene.

All four victims were male and police say there is no known connection between the four victims and the suspect.

The release states charges are pending against the suspect in custody.

Major Crimes and Forensic Identification are investigating.
