A man was arrested for attempted murder in central Stockholm, the capital of Sweden Thursday morning after a police officer was stabbed in the neck while on patrol, the second attack against police in the city in a matter of hours.
The incident took place on the Medborgarplatsen on Södermalm, one of the Islands that makes up the historic center of the city. Police have said it is too soon to talk about possible motives for the “unprovoked” attack, but Nyheter Idag reports a “well-established police source” that the would-be killer was a Moroccan youth.
A number of police patrols have been deployed to the city center, reports Swedish newspaper Expressen, and the city center including a local school was locked down.
