Transit attack linked to white supremacists

The man accused in a scary attack on a C-Train driver is linked to a local white supremacist group, according to sources. The 22-year-old was arrested after a four-year transit veteran was chased by a knife-wielding man, narrowly escaping injury when he ran into a train cab and locked himself inside early Monday morning. The man now charged in the attack is said to be an associate or member of the Aryan Guard, sources confirmed.

John Richard Marleau — a white supremacist who has attended most of the neo-Nazi group’s events, though he claims not to be an official member — faces multiple charges in connection with an attempted stabbing this week on a Calgary city train (CTrain). According to a city of Calgary news release, the incident occurred shortly before 1:30 a.m. on Jan. 4, when an emergency button was activated on a CTrain. After being told that the button had been pressed accidentally, the driver stopped the train and left his cab to deactivate the button. As he entered the center car, a knife-wielding man darted toward him. With his would-be attacker in pursuit, the driver ran back to his cab, locked himself inside, and called law enforcement. When police caught up with the suspect at a train platform nearby, Marleau allegedly removed the knife from his jacket and waved it in front of him. After he refused to drop the knife, police subdued him with a Taser and took him into custody.
