At approximately 6:00 p.m. a man drove a vehicle to SFO and entered the pre-security area of the International Terminal, which is accessible to the public. The man walked through the departure terminal and took out a sharp weapon, according to police.
The man then assaulted three passing travelers, according to Doug Yakel, the Public Information Officer for San Francisco Airport. The suspect was arrested and three passengers were treated for cuts and scrapes before continuing on their journeys. Yakel states there was no other impact to airport operators.
