A 34-year-old is said to have attacked a neighbor and a federal police officer who happened to be present in a high-rise building in Berlin. Any help comes too late for the 52-year-old. A chainsaw was found at the crime scene. The suspect is now in a psychiatric hospital.
After the deadly attack on a woman in a Berlin high-rise building, the suspect was initially housed in a clinic. The 34-year-old is said to have killed his neighbor and seriously injured another man. The Tiergarten District Court ordered the accused to be temporarily placed in a psychiatric hospital, the public prosecutor tweeted in the afternoon.
Police officers arrested the suspect in the Lichtenberg district. A woman called the police on Friday night and reported that her neighbor had attacked her with tools. The 52-year-old died from her injuries. A 52-year-old man was also seriously injured in the face, arm and hand. According to the German Police Union (DPolG), the injured person is a federal police officer. The officer was therefore privately at the crime scene. Police officers secured a chainsaw and tools. Glass bottles with a flammable liquid that burned easily were also found. "It is not known whether the chainsaw was used in the crime," said a spokesman.
A spokesman for the public prosecutor's office has not yet provided any information on possible motives. The spokesman for the public prosecutor said the investigation was being carried out into attempted manslaughter in conjunction with dangerous bodily harm, completed manslaughter and violations of the weapons law. You would have starting points that the suspect was in a condition that does not allow criminal responsibility. A placement order had been issued and implemented. The man is to be evaluated by a psychiatrist.
