Nothing is currently known about a motif. Likewise, whether the knife attacker and the victim knew each other. The 36-year-old will be questioned during the day, according to the police press office.
What is certain is that the younger man stood in the middle of the street around 3:10 p.m. on the Koglerberg (municipality of Inzersdorf in the Kremstal) and forced the driver to stop. The Micheldorfer then stood on the driver’s side and attacked the driver from Kirchdorf through the open window with two knives. Without warning and without saying a word. The 60-year-old, who sustained cuts on both arms and hands, drew the attention of the residents by continuously honking his horn. They came to the aid of the injured man, the killer got into his car and fled towards Pettenbach.
“During his ruthless escape, a 42-year-old pedestrian from the Kirchdorf district was brushed off the sidewalk by the car’s exterior mirror and thrown into a meadow,” the police said. The exterior mirror of the car was torn off. The pedestrian got away with bruises. The driver was taken to hospital with cuts.
A large-scale manhunt for the knife attacker was initiated immediately, but should not be successful until 0.45 a.m. The 36-year-old was arrested by several emergency services in Steyr. The police reported that he had put up a lot of resistance. The suspect is now in the Steyr police detention center. The two crime knives – two folding knives – could be seized.
