An Afghan asylum seeker has carried out a horrible attack on a pregnant Polish woman, repeatedly stabbing her at a German hospital. The man was caught by police but his victim had lost her unborn child.
The frenzied attack happened on Friday at a hospital in the town of Bad Kreuznach, near the city of Mainz, where the victim, a 25-year old Polish national was staying.
The attacker was apprehended by police at a local train station after fleeing the scene. Police said the man had come to visit the victim at the hospital, later stabbing her following what they described as a “violent argument” between the pair. His motivations for the assault remain unclear.
