Suspect arrested after eight hurt in Munich knife rampage

Officers are hunting the suspect

But "absolutely no element" of the investigation leads police to believe it was a politically or religiously- motivated act of terror, he said.

Four people are thought to be injured but none sustained life-threatening injuries, The Independent reports quoting the authorities.

Police spokesman Marcus da Gloria Martins said the man was arrested about three hours after Saturday morning's incident in an area near downtown Munich. "Update to description of the suspect: corpulent figure, short middle-blond hair, unshaven".

The 33-year-old, who was carrying a knife when he was arrested, was already known to police for bodily harm, drug offenses and theft, city police chief Hubertus Andrae told reporters.

Police had been looking for a male suspect around the underground station of Rosenheimer Platz in central Munich where the attack occurred.

Writing on Twitter, Munich Police said: 'We are searching for the perpetrator of the attack with all available police'.

"We have no indication of a terrorist, political, or religious motive", Andrae said.

Officers also urged locals to remain in their homes until the suspect is detained. "I assume it is to do with a psychological disorder of the perpetrator".
