Police in Sweden have arrested a man they strongly suspect was behind a truck attack that killed four people.

On Friday, police say a person hijacked a beer truck and plowed through a sidewalk full of pedestrians in Stockholm. About 15 others were injured.

Authorities issued photos of a person of interest Friday evening. They said Saturday they had a 39-year-old Uzbekistan-born man in custody, but they didn't say if he was the person in the photos. A name hasn't been released, but one official said the man had been on authorities' radar for a while.
