Knife attack : Man killed at Muffendorf refugee center

A man was killed in a stabbing at the Muffendorf refugee center; two suspects are in police custody.

A 32-year-old man was fatally stabbed at a refugee center in Muffendorf on Sunday night. Two suspects were taken into custody in connection with the attack. At around 6:50 p.m. on Sunday evening, police were informed of a seriously injured man in front of the refugee center. Emergency medical personnel were called to the scene but were not able to save him; he died an hour after the attack.

Police said on Monday said that three men had been involved in a confrontation and it escalated in front of the refugee center building. A 26-year-old and 30-year-old man attacked the 32-year-old with a knife and he collapsed. The two alleged perpetrators were taken into police custody. Criminal forensics police cordoned off a wide area for their investigations. It has not yet been determined whether one or both men were armed, and there is no information yet about the cause of the conflict or if the men have any relationship to one another. The prosecuting attorney’s office and a homicide commission have been appointed to take over the investigation.
