An 80-year-old man has been attacked in a car park in Dusseldorf with a machete just hours after a Kosovan went on an axe rampage in the city’s railway station.
According to police, the man’s injuries are not life threatening and the attack is not connected to last night’s attack on Dusseldorf station.
The victim suffered ‘blow-cut injuries’, according to police.
Teachers and students in the nearby Theodor-Fliedner-Gymnasium are being kept indoors and police have cordoned off the woodland around Kalkumer Schloßallee.
The culprit is on the run and the victim is in hospital.
Last night, seven people including two police officers were injured when a man wielding an axe went on the rampage at a train station in Dusseldorf.
The suspected culprit, identified as Fatmir H, from Kosovo, has been arrested and German anti-terror police confirmed they are not hunting anyone else.
The 36-year-old ran towards a nearby underground station and jumped from a bridge as he attempted to flee.
