Stabbing in Oberursel’s Town Hall

This morning a visitor to Oberursel’s Town Hall (Rathaus) attacked one of the workers there with a knife and was overpowered by a member of the Ordnungsamt.

The town hall remained closed for the rest of the morning.  The attacker was taken into police custody.

The town employee was treated at the scene and then transferred to hospital.  Despite being stabbed in the back, they are apparently out of danger and expected to be discharged possibly as soon as tomorrow.
