Police in Istanbul has reportedly detained a driver who rammed his bus into a crowded bus stop and attacked people who tried to prevent him from escaping with a knife. At least 13 people have been injured.

A police statement said the 33-year-old bus driver was detained Sunday after he jumped into the sea to try and get away from the scene, NBC reports.

The 13 injured included a man who was stabbed as he tried to prevent him from running away after he drove the city bus into the bus stop.

Police said three Iranian nationals and two children were also among those injured.
