    In Nuremberg, according to police, an Iraqi attacked a 21-year-old woman early on Sunday morning. A large search led to the arrest of the 25-year-old man shortly after the crime. As the police announced at a press conference on Monday, the suspect was “psychologically impaired”. In addition, he is already known for damage to property, assault and threats to the police.

    Over the past five years, the number of knife attacks in Middle Franconia has risen by 30 percent.

    In Mühlheim an der Ruhr, witnesses discovered a bleeding 20-year-old man in front of a shopping mall on Saturday night. He told the police that he had been attacked by four men and injured with a knife. One of the perpetrators had an Arab migration background.

    In Lingen, Lower Saxony, a 44-year-old woman was the victim of a knife attack on the night of Sunday. Two men overwhelmed her on an unlit bike path and pulled her off the bike. Subsequently, they severely injured their victim by stabbing her. They did not leave the woman until she shouted for help. The victim, who had to have an emergency operation during the night, described her attackers as “very young”. But she could not give any more details, according to a police spokeswoman.

    The police in Kiel arrested a 16-year-old teenager on Saturday evening. A 17-year-old Iraqi was involved in the stabbing at the central station and injured.

    In Frankfurt am Main, a 32-year-old woman was also fatally injured on Sunday evening with a knife. The police later arrested their 35-year-old ex-partner in southern Hesse. He has since been arrested for murder.

    Another knife attack took place in the Main metropolis on early Saturday morning. During a brawl between eight people, one of the men grabbed a knife and injured a 22-year-old man. The victim told the police he could not to remember anything. Shortly thereafter, a 19-year-old man claimed to have attacked someone with a knife. The facts of the case are currently unclear.

    In Hamm, North Rhine-Westphalia, a young man suffered cuts on early Sunday morning when he was attacked by an unknown assailant. The suspect had previously been expelled from a restaurant because of his aggressive behavior. On the street he attacked the 22-year-old victim for no apparent reason, according to the police report

    The Cologne murder commission has opened an investigation, after a man was fatally injured in the night of Saturday. In front of a restaurant several people started a fight. One of the participants is said to have suddenly pulled a knife and stabbed his victims. The suspect could be arrested on the spot.
