Iserlohn (dpa) - In a knife attack at the station of Iserlohn two people have died. According to initial findings, the investigators assume a relationship in the Sauerland city.
The fatalities are a man and a woman, said a spokesman for the police. A suspect was arrested in the afternoon. At first the police did not comment on the identity.
Apparently, several people witnessed the bloody act. "If you've been concerned or seen something, we'll take care of the fire department," the police wrote on Twitter. Even pastors should be on site. A murder commission should take up the investigations.
Exact details were initially not available. According to "bild.de" a victim had fought for his life when the forces approached, but could not be saved.
Around the station, the area was closed to large-scale use. A railroad track was shut off, the other - and thus the DB trains - but be reached, tweeted the police.
