Crowd Turn On Knifeman After Rampage In Würzburg, Germany Leaves Several Dead And Multiple Victims Injured.
Several people have been killed and several others injured in a knife assault in Würzburg, Germany police announced on Twitter, which was later confirmed by media reports.
In a surprise change of events, within minutes of the attack, as the knifeman was walking away from the scene, locals and passers-by started to attack the knifeman who responded by lunching at them with the weapon. People picked up chairs from a local restaurant in the street and threw them at him to delay his escape as police were alerted.
Police in the German city of Wuerzburg say they have arrested a suspect after an attack which has left ‘several’ injured and an unknown number dead. A “major operation” saw the central area sealed off, police in Lower Franconia said.
Wuerzburg is a city of about 130,000 people in Bavaria, and is located between Munich and Frankfurt.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
