Pedestrians were attacked at random by a man wielding a knife near the capital's famous Prater park this evening

Four people have been stabbed in two separate locations, by the Nestroy metro station and the Praterstern train station Wednesday evening according to Vienna police.

Eight emergency service vehicles were present at the scene and the U1 subway line was temporarily halted between 8.15pm and 8.45pm, although service has now resumed. Police are said to have arrested a man of Afghan nationality who carried out the attacks in the Austrian capital.

Three members of a family were critically injured last night after an "out of control" man armed with a knife triggered a lockdown in central Vienna.

The location of the incident near the famous Prater Park is cut off by the police.

The test, from 23nMe, analyzes DNA from saliva collected by clients, the FDA said in an agency news release. These three mutations, however, are not the most common BRCA1/BRCA2 mutations in the general population.


"A man attacked a family - a father, a mother and their 17-year-old daughter - with a knife".

"And half an hour later, there was another attack ... at Praterstern and here a person was also seriously injured and their life is in danger". "Whether there is a connection with the bodily injury in the area of #Praterstrasse is the subject of the investigation", Vienna police said in a tweet.

The police spokesman said the unidentified knifeman was being hunted by officers, and that the motive and exact circumstances were as yet unknown.
