Knife attack in Greven: Afghan was known to the police

He has ben tolerated in Germany, confirmed Attorney General Barbara Vogelsang on Tuesday to Junge Freiheit. The perpetrator had already appeared before the police. Vogelsang did not want to answer exactly which criminal offenses are involved.

In a refugee and homeless shelter in Greven, an Afghan asylum seeker killed an Azerbaijani and seriously injured a German on Saturday. The cause of the death "were numerous knife wounds in the upper body and neck of the 35-year-old," said the Münster public prosecutor on Monday.

The perpetrator is said to have shouted "Allahu Akbar"
Accordingly, there was a dispute between the perpetrator and a 43-year-old German resident of the accommodation. The 35-year-old Azerbaijani wanted to mediate. He himself was attacked with a knife by the 25-year-old Afghan. The knife stabber then fled, but was finally discovered in an adjacent field and arrested without resistance.

"Why the two men got into an argument is still unclear," said Chief Detective Dirk Bommert. The homicide squad is investigating in all directions. There is currently no evidence of a politically motivated act. "The accused has not yet got involved in the allegations."

Witnesses told the police that the 25-year-old yelled "Allahu Akbar" shortly before the attack. According to the responsible senior public prosecutor, the alleged perpetrator entered Germany in 2015. He has lived in the facility since January 2018. At the time of the crime, he is said to have been under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

A 24-year-old Somali recently killed three women in Würzburg . At almost the same time, a rejected asylum seeker stabbed a work colleague in Munderkingen.
