An African migrant stabbed a 11-year old child several times. The boy was taken to hospital with deep cuts and puncture wounds on his upper body, neck and leg, police said on Thursday.
Thanks to an emergency operation, the child from Vilshofen (Passau district) is no longer in danger. In the course of the investigations launched immediately, the officers were able to arrest a 25-year-old suspect from Eritrea.
The police also secured the knife. The reason why the 25-year-old man had attacked the boy living in the same apartment building on Wednesday is unclear.
