According to the Bild newspaper, 12 people have been slightly injured and two other passengers seriously wounds as a result of an attack on a public bus.
The police have confirmed that there were no fatalities and that the attacker was detained and is currently in custody.
The interior minister of the German state of Schleswig-Holstein stated that the police did not assume that there was a terrorist motive behind the attack. The Lubecker Nachrichten portal reported that the assailant is a 34-year-old man who came from Iran but now is a German national who has lived in Lubeck for years.
The scene around the bus stop has been cordoned off, with a police operation underway.
"The passengers were jumping out of the bus shouting, it was awful, and then the injured were taken away, the attacker had a kitchen knife," an eyewitness said, as quoted by Lubecker Nachrichten.
