Associated Press, April 19, 2023

German police released an initial description Wednesday of a suspect wanted in connection with a knife attack at a gym in the western city of Duisburg that left four men seriously wounded.

Police said that witnesses interviewed after the attack late Tuesday described the man as being about 30 years old, 180cm (5 feet 11 inches) tall, of normal build and with a long black beard. They added that witnesses said he had “southern” appearance – a term sometimes used in Germany to describe people of Mediterranean origin – and wore a long-sleeved pullover, dark trousers and a black baseball cap.

Police said the four victims are German citizens {snip}
