Eight injured in Munich knife rampage

Munich stabbing

Four of the perpetrator's six targets sustained light injuries while two escaped without injury during the attack in the Rosenheimer Platz area of the city this morning.

About three hours later, police arrested a man matching a description they had issued based on witness reports.

Officers in the Bavarian capital said they have "no serious doubt" that the man arrested was the assailant, after an incident which is not thought to be terror-related.

None of the injuries were life-threatening, police said, adding that the attacker's motive remained unclear.

A knifeman who fled the scene after attacking eight people in Munich suffered from suspected "psychological problems", police have confirmed.

According to police, the suspect was captured travelling by bicycle a few kilometres south of where the attacks took place.

Munich police have detained the man who probably attacked people with a knife. The police call the local residents via Twitter to stay at their homes and avoid the area.

Police had earlier said they believe the man, who attacked people at several different locations, acted alone.
