Multiple people have been wounded – some of them seriously – in a knife attack on a train station in Frankfurt.

The attack occurred around 9am in the central German city before police overpowered and arrested the attacker. 

Three people were seriously injured in the attack, local newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine reported, though police added no injuries were life-threatening. 

Witnesses told the newspaper that the man seemed to be under the influence of drugs and appeared to chose his victims at random. 

Without discounting the theory, officers added that possible links between the attacker and victims were being examined, along with any political motivation.  

A police statement posted on Twitter said: ‘Frankfurt train district: One person was reported who is alleged to have injured several other people. They were arrested.

‘The exact circumstances of the crime are currently the subject of the investigation. There is no longer any danger. More information will follow.’
