Germany: Syrian stabs mother with a baby and then runs amok armed with knives

Great commotion on Thursday afternoon in Magdeburg district Kannenstieg. According to witnesses, a 21-year-old Syrian first threatened a young woman with a baby carriage at the Milchweg tram stop at around 3.40 pm and injured her.

The man then boarded the tram of Line 1, which had been run in in the meantime, and threatened several passengers with kitchen knives – among the attacked was a 72-year-old woman from Magdeburg.

“Afterwards the perpetrator left the tram and walked to the intersection of Ebendorfer Chaussee / Johannes-R.-Becher-Straße with knives in his hands,” said a police spokesman.

A 45-year-old car driver and another car driver became aware of the incident and reacted immediately. The two men managed to overpower the 21-year-old and hold him until the police arrived. The 45-year-old man was injured and was taken to a clinic.

The background of the crime is still unclear.
