Germany: Iraqi threatens passengers on train with knife

State and federal police officers arrested a 38-year-old man at Bietigheim-Bissingen station on Tuesday evening. The man is suspected of having previously bullied a traveller using two knives by apparently gesticulating wildly towards him without any reason. An uninvolved witness observed the incident and called the police. Later, the 38-year-old Iraqi citizen inflicted cuts on his leg and sat down in the track area. He was then admitted to a specialist clinic.The closure of the Bietigheim-Bissingen railway station between 00:03 am and 00:28 am caused disruptions to train traffic. The Federal Police is now investigating the 38-year-old man, who lives in the Ludwigsburg district, on suspicion of coercion and violation of the weapons law.
