Munich knife rampage leaves at least five wounded, sparks manhunt

A knife-wielding man in Munich rampaged through a busy section of the German city on Saturday, wounding at least five people before fleeing on a bicycle and touching off an hour-long manhunt.

Authorities combed the Bavarian capital’s Rosenheimer Platz and its surrounding areas in search of the suspect, whom they described as around 40 years old , wearing a green jacket and carrying a backpack with a camping mat. He was later described as blonde, overweight and unshaven.

None of the crazed cyclist’s victims suffered life-threatening injuries, cops said in a tweet.

The suspect was nabbed just before noon local time, German outlet Bild reported.

The attacker’s motives remain unclear.
