As a result of the attack on passengers inside the San Francisco International Airport terminal on Friday, three had cuts and scratches before the suspect was arrested, authorities said.
The attacker tried to injure passengers in the security public space of the international terminal at around 6 pm, airport officials said.
The passengers were treated for minor injuries before continuing their journey, and other operations at the airport were not affected, officials said.
It was not clear if the suspect was a passenger and the motive for the attack is unknown, airport duty chief Russell Mackey told the San Francisco Chronicle.
A KTVU-TV reporter, who reported on the arrival of the Golden State Warriors at the airport, said a large knife had been removed from the scene.
Other details were not immediately available.
