A 36-year-old man was stabbed to death in Stuttgart on Wednesday with a weapon described as a “sword.”
The man was attacked in a street in the late afternoon, police said. Witnesses called police after the attack, which occurred during a dispute.
The victim succumbed to his injuries despite rescue efforts. Tabloid newspaper Bild reported the victim was a German Kazakh.
Police initially reported the alleged perpetrator was a Syrian citizen who had lived in Germany since 2015. However, local media have reported there may be discrepancies in that, with Bild reporting there was suspicion that the suspect could be a Palestinian who has assumed a false identity.
Mohammed hat die Tat zwar gestanden und sitzt in Untersuchungshaft – aber dennoch gibt der Fall Rätsel auf.
