Niles, MI (WNEM) -

The 911 audio tapes have been released in the Amtrak stabbing spree, depicting the frightening moment when a Saginaw man went on a rampage in early December.

Michael Williams, 44, is currently awaiting trial, contingent on the results of a mental health evaluation.

On December 5, police say Williams stabbed four people on an Amtrak train in Niles, Michigan. The train was headed for Port Huron.

The audio recordings captured the disturbing exchange between passengers and 911 dispatchers. No one was killed in the attack.

An assistant conductor was stabbed six times in the head, chest and neck but survived.

Williams later told police he believed the man was a demon. Williams is a former vet and his family says he suffers from mental illness.
