A spokesman for the local police Gloria Martins said, according to witnesses, the arrested man is very similar to the attacker. They're not yet sure whether he is the assailant.

The 33-year-old suspect began indiscriminately stabbing passers-by in the Haidhausen area, east of downtown Munich, targeting eight people in all, including a 12-year-old child, at different sites. "Rather than that, we believe that the perpetrator had psychological problems".
