20:59 (January 25) – The number of injured in the knife attack has risen to seven, three of whom have been seriously injured.

The man is believed to be a stateless 33-year-old Palestinian and is not believed to be an extremist, with police suspecting that he has mental issues.

According to De Bild he has appeared been convicted for sexual and violent offences in the past and was in custody until a week ago.
