A 24-year-old man went berserk in front of an office building in Vienna’s Leopoldstadt district on Friday morning, threatening to kill several people.
In front of an office building in the Lassallestraße area in the second district, an argument apparently broke out between a currently unknown elderly person and a 24-year-old Afghan man at around 9.15 am on Friday. The 24-year-old allegedly threatened to kill the man.
A 39-year-old witness called the police and took a photo of the suspect. When the 24-year-old became aware of the 39-year-old, he allegedly threatened to kill the man as well. The 39-year-old went back into the office building and locked the door.
The 24-year-old then allegedly hit the door several times and threatened to kill a 48-year-old woman who was also present in the office.
The Vienna police were then called in and arrested the suspect after he briefly tried to escape. The man was taken to a prison.
