Syria must have emptied its insane asylums and sent the former inmates to Germany, because yet another mentally disturbed asylum seeker has run amok, this time in Regensburg. Maybe this fellow should be seeking a different kind of asylum…

Man (28) severely injured with knife: Syrian (23) arrested
In the midst of the Regensburg pedestrian area, a 28-year-old man was attacked by a Syrian with a knife on Wednesday afternoon. The St. Kassian Plaza became a police zone immediately after the attack.
According to initial investigations the 28-year-old was walking on St. Kassian Plaza with his wife at about 11:15. Suddenly a Syrian walked up to them and abruptly stabbed the man in the back with a ten-centimeter-long knife. After the attack the Syrian ran towards Viereimergasse, but he was stopped by courageous pedestrians. The 28-year-old was severely injured in the attack and was taken to the hospital. Since then he has been listed as no longer in serious danger, and his condition is now stable.
The Syrian was arrested and interrogated. He is an asylum seeker who has been living in Germany since 2013. He apparently was a stranger to his 28-year-old victim, and the reason for his attack is not clear. Initial investigations point to a psychological condition of the 23-year-old. Therefore he was brought to a forensic facility. There are no indications for a political motive as of yet.
In a previous article it was mentioned that the attacker was a Jordanian. The police have corrected that statement. We have therefore edited the article.
