Monika Lilja believes that the man had not committed a crime and would only cross Järvafältet.

"He had no memory of forgetting the pocket knife in his bag," says Monika Lilja.

It was around 17pm on Saturday that a bag inspector discovered that the man had a knife in his bag. He then allegedly tried to run away from the scene, but was stopped by security guards and arrested by police.

According to Monika Lilja, the man uses the knife partly at work.
