In Vienna’s district of Währing, a ” Heute” magazine reader on Saturday became aware of a man holding a sword in front of the Gersthofer parish.
On Saturday, a Viennese citizen spotted a man who was apparently wielding a sword directly in front of a church at Bischof-Faber-Platz square in Währing at around 6 pm. It is not clear whether this was a real sword or just a toy.
Apparently nobody alerted the police, however. As the police press office confirmed to “Heute”, there were no emergency calls and no deployment of police on this incident. What the man with the sword wanted to intend with his action remains open.
