36-year-old man from Yugoslavia arrested for attack at Düsseldorf’s Hauptbahnhof Station
At least seven people have been injured – three of them seriously – after a man started “randomly” attacking people at a train station in the German city of Düsseldorf. German authorities are saying the man has “psychological problems.”
One victim of the attack is said to be seriously injured. The attacker was also badly hurt when he tried jumping off a bridge while running from the police.

The attacker is described as a 36-year-old from the former Yugoslavia. While his motive is not yet known, Germany is already on edge after recent terror attacks, including the brutal attack on a Christmas Market in December that killed 12 people. The killer in that case – Anis Amri – had pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS).
That attack was the deadliest in Germany since 1980.
Train station reopened, investigation ongoing
The train station in Düsseldorf is now reportedly reopened, and the investigation is ongoing. Much of the area had been blocked off, and police helicopters were seen above the site.
Hauptbhanhof is the largest station in Düsseldorf. It handles around 250,000 passengers every day.
