Ansbach: After a knife attack: the search for a motive continues

After an attack on several passers-by with two injured in Ansbach, the police are still looking for the motive and the background to the crime. The investigation was ongoing, a police spokesman said early Friday morning. He did not give any further details. In the incident near the train station in Ansbach, the alleged perpetrator was shot down by the police on Thursday evening and fatally injured.

The 30-year-old man is said to have attacked several passers-by with "at least one" knife on Thursday evening, the police said. He called out "Allahu Akbar" ("God is great") several times during the crime. "Bild" had previously reported on this. A police spokesman said it was not yet possible to confirm whether there was a terrorist or Islamist background. "But it will be examined intensively." After the crime, investigations and searches were carried out in the man's environment.

It cannot be ruled out that the 30-year-old attacked passers-by indiscriminately. The two injured passers-by were not in mortal danger, according to the police. The police officers were not injured. According to the police, several alarmed patrol crews managed to stop the man. When he attacked the officers, the police used firearms. According to the police, he was injured so badly that he died on the spot despite immediate resuscitation measures.
