A fatal knife attack took place in Frankfurt on Wednesday evening where an unknown person stabbed a 25-year-old to death.
The victim died in hospital on Thursday night.
The act happened around 9PM in the Heddernheim district. The victim asked passers-by for help while still on the street (Im Heidenfeld) and then collapsed with a bleeding wound in the upper body. Emergency services took the young man with stab wounds to a clinic where he later died – BILD.
Investigators discovered a trail of blood that led to a nearby allotment garden where the police found a blank gun and a backpack.
Witnesses told the officers that two men from there rushed to a car with Osnabrück license plates and drove away.
That Thursday night, the investigators identified two suspects in the area around the holder. The police arrested the suspects, one 20 years old, at the Sutthauser Strasse/Holzhauser Strasse roundabout in Georgsmarienhutte-Holzhauser.
One of the two arrested collapsed after the arrest and was taken to a hospital – his personal details are therefore not yet known.
The reasons for committing the crime are still unclear.
