Man on the run after stabbing 5 people in Magdenburg, Germany

The suspect stabbed five people after trying to snatch the mobile phone of a young person. Then he hit a 63-year-old man in the face after he tried in vain to pull him off his bike. Then he grabbed two women and pushed them to the ground. Police used a helicopter to aid in the manhunt, but the suspect is on the loose. The motive of the perpetrator is not yet known. Local police suggest it was a robbery turned bad. Skeptical comments about a cover-up of a terror attack appeared later on Facebook and Twitter.
