Initial information suggests 27-year-old German suspect made 'political statements' before attack at train station


BERLIN (AA) - A knife attack at a train station in southern Germany killed one person and injured three others, police said Tuesday.

Police arrested the assailant, a 27-year-old German citizen, in a small town about 40 kilometers (25 miles) east of Munich soon after the incident.

Bavaria’s Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said there has been no indication of a religious-extremist motivation to the attack. He said the suspect was a drug addict with psychological problems.

Earlier, police spokesman Hans-Peter Kammerer told reporters that the motive of the attacker was unclear.

“At the present moment, we cannot tell anything for certain about the possible motivation of the attacker,” he said.

The spokesman said the suspect made “political statements” at the train station did not give further details.

Local media reported witness claims that the assailant shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great) at the station.
