Frankfurt / Main (dpa / lhe) - A man with two hatchets in his hand triggered a police operation in Frankfurt's main train station. The officials were able to arrest the 38-year-old without resistance, as the police announced on Wednesday. It turned out that he had stolen the hatchets from the kitchen area of a fast food restaurant.
A traveler reported to the police late Tuesday evening that a person was walking through the main station with an ax in his hand. On site, the man made a confused, mentally unstable impression. After securing the axes, he was released again. There was no evidence of a threat or the use of force.
