After the attack, the victim was able to notify the police at the location on Julius-Ficker-Strasse. Alerted officials began life support measures on site for the seriously injured man. Rescue teams from Vienna took over the emergency medical care and brought the man with life-threatening injuries to a hospital. The victim had stab wounds in the back and chest.
The suspect was arrested in the apartment. Since she complained of pain, the woman was also taken to a hospital for further clarification. The course of events and the motive are currently still completely unclear, said Fürst. The alleged murder weapon, a kitchen knife, was seized. The interrogations are still pending. The Vienna State Criminal Police Office, North Branch, is in charge of the investigation.
