Attacker killed woman. And of course, ‘motive unclear’.

The attack was actually stopped by a BMW driver who hit the attacker with his car and saved it from being worse.

Police are saying they don’t think it is terrorism at this point. He was ‘known to the police’.

Police say a Syrian asylum-seeker killed a woman with a machete and wounded two others outside a bus station in the southwestern German city of Reutlingen before being arrested.

Police spokesman Bjoern Reusch said in a statement Sunday that witnesses said the 21-year-old man, who was known to police, was having an argument with the woman before attacking her about 4:30 p.m. Police say the motive behind the attack is still not clear.

The attack comes as Germany is on edge following a rampage at a Munich mall on Friday night in which nine people were killed, and an ax attack on a train a week ago that left five wounded in southern Germany.

Update:

Video of attack. You can hear a witness shouting ‘My God, My God, he’s attacking her with a knife!”

Update:

According to the NZ Herald, he was known to the police because “the asylum-seeking Syrian man had been involved in previous incidents causing injuries to other people, police said”.

So exactly why was he still there and not kicked out?
