A POLICE officer was stabbed and terrified pedestrians mowed down during a terror attack in Canada.
The suspect rammed a van into a police car sending the officer flying 15ft into the air.
He then jumped out the car and knifed the cop “several times” and fled on foot as a dramatic manhunt was launched.
Police chased down the attacker as he drove through the packed out streets in downtown Edmonton.
He then ploughed into four pedestrians before he was arrested after tipping the van on to its side.
Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht said the incidents are being investigated “as an act of terror”.
The rented van had an ISIS flag in the front seat, he confirmed.
Dramatic photos showed the U-Haul on its side with the windscreen smashed out.
Witness Kim Anderson told the Edmonton Sun: “There were people flying and everything. I’m shocked – I just see people flying.”

Police spokesman Scott Pattison said: “The officer was approached by an unknown male suspect in a vehicle, at which time the suspect rammed the police cruiser.
“The suspect got out of his vehicle and an altercation ensued.
“The officer sustained some injuries, he’s in hospital, and thankfully he’s doing OK.”
A huge road block was set up as police pursued the terror suspect during last night’s attack.
The streets had been full of revellers packing out pubs to watch the football.
The stabbed cop had been working routine traffic control near Commonwealth Stadium as thousands gathered to watch a Canadian Football League game.
