Germany. After stabbing at University, man is taken to a psychiatric hospital

On Friday, four people were hurt in a knife attack on a university in west Germany. According to the Dortmund prosecutor's office, the suspect was arrested Friday and taken to a hospital for mental health on Saturday.

Four "randomly chosen" victims were attacked by the 34-year-old suspect, who was armed with two kitchen knives. Henner Kruse, the door-spokesman for the prosecutor's offices, said this during a press conference. The fate of a thirty-year-old assistant professor who was attacked at a conference is uncertain. Doctors don't believe she will be okay.

He had previously stabbed a 22-year old student in the stomach eight more times. Although he needed to be immediately operated on, his days are not in danger. He explained that the other victims, a young man aged 22 and a woman in her 20s, were not as badly affected.

Students quickly arrived at the scene and neutralized the suspect, who had been studying in the establishment for a while. The suspect acknowledged the facts and explained his actions by saying that he felt threatened from a group students who wanted to "annihilate" him. Henner Kruse said he suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and hallucinations.

He had been long treated for mental disorders and had tried suicide two days prior to the events. He had voluntarily stayed at a psychiatric center before asking for his release. The police disregarded any religious or political motive. According to the spokesperson for prosecution, an investigation has been opened for attempted murder and serious bodily injury. It is likely that he wasn't responsible for his actions at the time.
