Police charged an Alberta man Saturday with three counts of attempted murder after linking him to a string of vicious and bizarre attacks in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside.

Nicholas Osuteye, 35, has been accused of randomly attacking three women on Friday morning between 9:30 and 10:00am.

“The matter is now before the courts and the investigation in continuing,” read a release from the VPD. “Osuteye remains in custody. His next court appearance has not yet been scheduled.”
