Suspect Arrested After Knife Attack Injures Several in Munich

Munich stabbing

The suspect didn't immediately give police any information on his motive.

Oct.21: Police in Munich, Germany, have arrested a man on suspicion that he was responsible for attacking four people with a knife in the city on Saturday.

According to The Guardian, the attack took place in Munich's eastern Haidhausen area at about 8.30 a.m. local time.

A man with a knife attacked eight people in Munich on Saturday and then fled, police said.

They said the suspect, who is unshaven and appears to be in his 40s, has short blond hair and was wearing grey pants and a green jacket at the time.

"We have arrested a person who very strongly resembles the description by witnesses, but we can not confirm that he is the attacker", Martins said.

During the several hours he remained at large there was a palatable sense of panic in the city, with police urging residents to stay indoors.

Six of the people were Germans, one Italian and one Romanian.

In July 2016, a German-Iranian teenager who police say was obsessed with mass murderers, shot dead nine people at a Munich shopping mall before turning the gun on himself.
