Munich police detain a suspect following early morning rampage


According to local reports, police in Munich have detained a suspect in relation to this morning's knife rampage in the German city.

Confirming developments, Munich police spokesman, Marcus da Gloria Martins, said: "We have arrested a person who very strongly resembles the description by witnesses, but we cannot confirm that he is the attacker." 

Four of the perpetrator's six targets sustained light injuries while two escaped without injury during the attack in the Rosenheimer Platz area of the city this morning. 

Emergency services were called to the scene at around 8.30 a.m. local time, and police requested the public remain indoors while authorities launched a manhunt.

A motive for the attack has yet to be established.
