A man killed eight people and injured seven with a knife in a village in China’s northwestern province of Gansu before dawn on Tuesday, the first day of the Lunar New Year, local police said.

Police in Baiyin, a city in Gansu, have arrested the 49-year-old suspect, identified by the surname Guo. Guo allegedly suspected his wife of having an affair and attacked villagers with a knife after drinking, the police said in a statement Wednesday.

China is currently in the midst of a week-long holiday that has seen millions of people returning to their hometowns to celebrate the new year with their families.

According Guo’s initial confession, he “sought revenge as hatred grew in his mind” over his wife’s suspected infidelity, the police said in the statement, adding that the case was still under investigation.

The police report did not provide other details on Guo, nor did it specify if the victims included Guo’s wife.
