Poor guy. Another suicide attempt? Mental health needs a higher priority.

Perhaps a guy he did know but his name is "SELF".

It's lucky someone called for help. In all likeliness, it was probably a very sanitary knife and not one designed for stabbing. people. The article neglects to mention what type of knife, size of the blade, etc. Anyway... Good thing for him. The very efficient and capable police should nab the assailant quickly.
