Munich Knife Attack: 5 People Injured, Suspect On Run


Munich: An unidentified knifeman has attacked and wounded several people in downtown Munich on Saturday, local police reported, adding that the perpetrator is still at large. Local law enforcement told residents not to leave their homes.

The suspect has been described as a man in his 40s. There has been no mention of any motive for the assault so far. The suspect is also carrying a backpack, according to a police tweet.

Munich itself saw a shooting rampage in July last year, when an eighteen-year-old shot dead nine people at the Olympia shopping mall in the Bavarian metropolis.
