Arrests in Oldenburg: Man stabbed in pedestrian zone
May 31, 2017
Oldenburg — Terrible murder in the pedestrian zone in Oldenburg in Lower Saxony.
A man was stabbed on the street. He succumbed to his injuries at the scene.
At around 6 pm the victim engaged in a loud dispute with the perpetrators in Achternstrasse. After the deed the men escaped.
Officers from the Homicide Investigation Unit secured evidence in the shopping street at the scene.
A police helicopter circled over the city, and a large squad searched for the perpetrator. Officers arrested two people, who are now being interrogated. The investigations continue.
But there’s more to the story: according to reliable sources in Germany, the killers are Syrian refugees. I don’t know of any news reports yet about this aspect of the incident, but as soon as I get any further information, I’ll post it.
