NILES, Mich. (AP) - Police say four people who were stabbed by a man on an Amtrak train in southwestern Michigan are in stable condition.

Niles police Chief Jim Millin said in a news release on Saturday that initial reports were that at least one of the victims was in serious condition, but that they are all in stable condition now.

The attack aboard the Chicago-to-Port Huron train happened Friday night in Niles, about 10 miles north of South Bend, Indiana.

Millin says dispatchers officers responding to a report of a suspicious person on the train arrived when the attack was already underway. He says they stormed the train and used a stun gun to subdue the suspect, a 44-year-old Saginaw man.

Police haven't disclosed the suspect's name or possible motive.
