A KNIFEMAN went on the rampage in central Paris tonight, stabbing four people in a random attack.

Journalist Charles Pellegrin said: "I came out of a comedy show near Opera in central Paris and was immediately told to go back in because there was a madman with a knife.

"Once back inside we heard sirens and two gun shots.

"I then spoke to eyewitnesses who told me a man stabbed multiple people at random."

Eyewitness Fiona Zanetti tweeted: "I was in a restaurant rue saint Augustin in the 2eme arrondissement , crowd panic, blood, a guy with a knife in the streets and people screaming, avoid the area if you can."
