During the night from Thursday to Friday, a Tunisian in Vienna’s Brigittenau district apparently tried to attack randomly selected passers-by. The North African stormed two men with his kitchen knife pulled out – the blade is said to have been almost 20 cm long.
In the early hours of Friday morning, a 34-year-old Tunisian apparently attacked two men for no reason who were on a pub tour in the Brigittenau district of Vienna. In the street Othmargasse the attacker threateningly approached the two with a barely drawn knife. The police reported in a press release that the victims were able to avoid the knife attack on them and escape. The alarmed police were able to arrest the knife stabber in the course of an immediate search. He had thrown the weapon into a garbage can. It was found and seized. The measures taken by the public prosecutor’s office are still not known.
