A WOMAN is being held on suspicion of murder after an elderly man was stabbed to death and three other shoppers knifed in quiet village Co-op in South Wales.
The man was shopping with his wife when he was reportedly slashed in the aisle of the supermarket during the bloodbath in Pen-y-Graig in Rhondda this afternoon.
South Wales Police confirmed he tragically died as a 29-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of murder and taken to Merthyr Tydfil police station.
One of the victims is in a stable condition at the University Hospital of Wales and two other people have suffered non life-threatening injuries, police said.
The Welsh Ambulance Service earlier said four people were taken to hospital, but did not give an update on their condition.
Horrified shoppers were queuing outside when the woman reportedly went "berserk" and knifed a man in a van.
She then stormed into the shop and knifed the elderly man in the neck as police raced to the scene.
One local shopkeeper said: "One person has died and another is critically ill in hospital. We think the other two will survive.
"I saw a man with blood dripping down the back of his head and a woman with a cut on her neck.
"It was crazy – we think it was just a random attack. But everyone is feeling very uptight."
