43-year-old chased through the streets : Cologne man stabbed

Unknown culprits have chased a 43-year-old man from Cologne through the city and stabbed him. The victim was seriously injured and taken to hospital.

A 43-year-old man in Cologne was chased through the streets by strangers and then stabbed. Police reported on Easter Monday that several men had already chased the man through Cologne-Mülheim on Good Friday.

When the fugitive fell while trying to turn into another street, he was caught. One of the pursuers stabbed him several times with a knife. Then the pursuers fled.

The victim was seriously injured and taken to a clinic. The investigators reported that the reason for the knife attack was possibly a dispute that had already begun last Thursday.
