A 22-year-old man attacked an angler with a knife in Taufkirchen (Erding district) because he did not want to lend him his fishing rod. The 32-year-old angler was not injured, as the police announced on Friday. The suspect is in custody because of an attempted homicide.
According to the police, the 32-year-old had been fishing with his father on Thursday on the banks of the Grosse Vils, when a young man asked them for one of their fishing rods. After they refused, the Afghan became angry, but went away. A short time later he returned with a knife. The 56-year-old father was able to fend off the attack until the attacker fled. The police finally arrested the man in a shelter for asylum seekers.
