Dusseldorf police said that the 36-year-old immigrant from Yugoslavia, suddenly pulled out an ax and ran towards the crowd at the train station.

People ran away from the scene, but the suspect managed to injure seven people before being detained. Among the injured were women and a 13-year-old girl.
