(CNN)The main suspect arrested over a knife attack in Paris on Friday near the former offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is of Pakistani origin, French authorities have said.

France's Interior Minister, Gérald Darmanin, told France 2 in an interview on Friday that authorities were working to verify more details about the suspect's background after the attack that left two people seriously injured.

The minister also confirmed that the incident was being treated as "an act of Islamist terrorism."

The lead suspect had not been known to police for "radicalization" but was arrested last month for carrying a screwdriver, Darmanin added.

Police say seven people have been arrested over the attack. Five of the arrests were made in an apartment "likely to have been used by the main suspect," a judicial source told CNN on Friday.

Although the victims have not been named, they are both employees of French documentary production firm Premières Lignes, according to the company's founder Paul Moreira.

Moreira said the pair were attacked with a "sort of cleaver" in front of the office. Their lives are not in danger but they are in a serious condition, a police spokesperson said Friday.

In a statement on Facebook, Charlie Hebdo magazine expressed its "support and solidarity" to Premières Lignes and "to those affected by this heinous attack."

Annie Hidalgo, mayor of Paris, tweeted that "it is once again freedom of expression that is targeted," while former Prime Minister Manuel Valls said on Twitter that it gave him the feeling of "reliving a nightmare."

The knife attack came during a trial of 14 suspects for their alleged involvement in a series of terrorist attacks over three days in January 2015, which started in the offices of Charlie Hebdo and ended in a kosher supermarket.

A total of 17 people were killed in the 2015 attacks, which were carried out by brothers Said and Chérif Kouachi and their accomplice Amedy Coulibaly. The suspects currently on trial are accused of providing these men with logistical support.

After the knife attack on Friday, Luc Hermann, Director of Premières Lignes, criticized what he said was a "total absence of protection of this building since the attacks on Charlie Hebdo."

CNN's Gaëlle Fournier and Niamh Kennedy contributed to this report.

When Christians or white supremacists belonging to certain countries attack mosques and kill Muslim worshippers we don't single out his nationality. Not a single Islamic country and media group has ever focused on nationality of a Western terrorist.

We will remember how the Western media have singled out the Pakistani attacker when many more were involved. This constant singling out of Pakistanis is nothing new. We know what these Westerners are trying to achieve here. It is to spread more hate against Pakistan and Pakistanis. They cannot have it their way with Pakistan so they start playing these cheap tactics. It will backfire very badly.

Also the timing is highly suspicious. Especially since IK criticised the Charlie Hebdo cartoons these French fvcks decided to name and single out the Pakistani attacker. If France has the balls it should break diplomatic relations with Pakistan. They always have a laundy list of complaints against Pakistan. Yet they don't have the courage to remove their spying headquarter in Pakistan. These silly antics won't achieve much.

Its time to reap what you have done to Syria. Every western nation will pay for their sins.
