LAS VEGAS (AP) - A man accused of randomly stabbing four people near the Las Vegas Strip told police he was upset after a street argument, so he fetched a 9-inch kitchen knife and attacked people.
Police say a 56-year-old woman underwent surgery for a stomach wound, a man and woman were each stabbed in the lower back and a teen was slashed in the shoulder in the attack about 11:15 p.m. Thursday.
Police say 53-year-old Lee Sanford surrendered a few minutes later at a nearby McDonald's restaurant.
Sanford told police he thought white people were bothering him. Sanford is black.
Police say Sanford also was sometimes incoherent during a police interview following his arrest.
Sanford is jailed without bail pending a court appearance Monday on four charges of battery with a deadly weapon.
