The man attacked passersby in five places near Rosenheimer Platz in the eastern part of the city centre at around 0630 GMT, inflicting light injuries on four people, a police spokesman told AFP. The perpetrator, described by the police as a man in his forties, wearing grey pants and a running jacket, fled the scene on a black bicycle.
A man wounded five people with a knife in the southern German city of Munich on Saturday and was being hunted by police, police and the fire department said.
None of the injuries were life-threatening, police said, adding that the attacker’s motive remained unclear.
They urged people in the city to remain at home as they had received conflicting information about which way the attacker had gone. They described the suspect as a corpulent, unshaven man in his 40s who had fled the scene on a bicycle.
