According to a report by Yonhap News Agency on August 4, a knife-wielding man in his 20s appeared at the Gangnam Express Bus Terminal in Seoul that morning. South Korean police arrested him six minutes after receiving the call. A security guard was injured in the incident, and the man’s motive is under investigation, according to police.
According to the report, the South Korean police stated that at around 10:39 am on the 4th, the police received a report of “a man with a knife at the express bus station”, and then at around 10:45 am, they stopped at the Seoul Gangnam Express Bus Passenger Station in Seocho District. The underground commercial street of the station arrested the knife-wielding man and confiscated the two murder weapons he was carrying.
In the past few days, “indiscriminate murders” in South Korea and “announced murder” posts on social media have caused panic among the public to a certain extent.
