Austria: Two passengers in train attacked with knife

A knife attack on Christmas Eve in a train in Lower Austria: A 26-year-old - allegedly mentally ill man ( wow, what are the policemen today fast with their medical diagnoses !)  suddenly attacked two passengers and injured them on the neck. As police spokesman Heinz Holub said on Christmas Day, the 26-year-old first attacked a 46-year-old man from Krems without warning with a folding knife on his neck. He then followed an 18-year-old Viennese man in a train and inflicted a bleeding wound on his neck.Both passengers had to be treated on an outpatient basis at the University Hospital Linz. The 26-year-old was arrested on the train shortly after 10 pm. He showed no resistance. The public prosecutor's office in St. Pölten ordered the man to be admitted to prison. Detention was ordered.
