  • Police in Munich Germany are hunting an knifeman who is thought to have stabbed several people in the central square train station. Authorities have urged locals to remain indoors

No one was seriously hurt in the attack that started at around 8.30 a.m.in the Haidhausen area, east of downtown Munich.

A knifeman who fled the scene after attacking eight people in Munich suffered from suspected "psychological problems", police have confirmed.

The authorities previously said they had deployed "all available police forces" to search for the attacker.

Police chief Hubertus Andrae said that investigators had ruled out terrorism or religion as a motive for the attack.

In the study, researchers conducted a "census" 60 nature reserves created in Germany over the past century. The annual average fell by 76 percent over the 27 year period.

Da Gloria Martins says the assailant attacked six people at different locations in the area but only four of them were wounded. They mainly had superficial stab wounds and in at least one case had been hit. "Update to description of the suspect: corpulent figure, short middle-blond hair, unshaven".

Police are hunting a "volatile" suspect following the incident on Saturday morning.

He said police have "no serious doubts" that the suspect was the assailant, and that there was no longer any danger to the public.

During the several hours he remained at large there was a palatable sense of panic in the city, with police urging residents to stay indoors.
