Oh, there was a reason all right.
An 18-year-old Afghan “asylum seeker” attacked passengers on a train in Feldkirch in Vorarlberg in the small hours of Saturday 13 October, injuring them with a folding knife, Austrian news outlet VOL.at reports.
The Afghan asylum seeker immediately attacked a 27-year-old German for no apparent reason after he had boarded. When other passengers tried to calm the 18-year-old Afghan, he pulled out the knife and stabbed a 44-year-old in his back.
The Afghan had previously been seen around 3 o’clock crossing the tracks twice as a train approached. Then he boarded the train to Bludenz and attacked the 27-year-old.
Four passengers detained the 18-year-old until police arrived on the platform. One of the men suffered a knife wound on his hand. The 18-year-old was arrested.
