Nuremberg: knife attacks on three women

The police are looking for three knife attacks in Nuremberg district St. Johannis with numerous forces after the perpetrator. Residents continue to urge them to be careful, the perpetrator could "continue to be armed".



The investigators in Middle Franconia search with high pressure for an attacker who should have stabbed three women in Nuremberg. "Please be careful, the offender could still be armed with a knife," the officials said. In addition to patrolmen civil servants were in use, residents were questioned. A special commission has been set up.

After the three knife attacks in Nuremberg's St. Johannis district, the women are now out of danger. "According to the doctors treating the treatments of the three victims were successful," said the police. All three women had to be operated on Thursday evening in the course of the attack.

Police meanwhile go from single offenders
