Already in the night from last Friday to Saturday, the police was called around 05:30 am to an incident after the end of the Schlossgrabenhock festival in Kirchhofen.According to previous investigations, a 36-year-old man in one of the tents was denied entry by the employees after a verbal argument and a slight wrangling. Shortly thereafter he appeared again with a kitchen knife and began to cut up the tent. When the 31-year-old victim left the tent shortly afterwards, the drunken man faced him and stabbed him in the stomach. After another stab in the shoulder, the perpetrator fled.Another employee then searched for the suspect, who was also attacked by him and stabbed in the back and shoulder. The 58-year-old had to receive medical attention. The alarmed officers of the Freiburg-Süd police station subsequently arrested the suspect in the vicinity of the Schlossgrabenhock.The 31-year-old, who was fatally injured, had to undergo emergency surgery and is still in hospital. The 36-year-old man of Somalian nationality was brought before the magistrate on Saturday, who ordered him to be remanded in custody at the request of the Freiburg public prosecutor's office.
