Grand Ducal police reported that a knife attack occurred at the central railway station in Luxembourg City at around 2.00am on Tuesday morning.
According to the police, a woman had an argument with her ex-partner. The situation escalated when the former partner stabbed the woman's current boyfriend in the neck with a Swiss army knife. The couple was able to make their way to the local police station where the officers administered first aid to the injured man before he was admitted to hospital. The presumed culprit is also alleged to have made death threats against his ex-girlfriend.
The police were able to locate the ex-boyfriend shortly afterwards in Bonnevoie and found that he was indeed carrying a Swiss army knife as well as three pellets of cocaine. The man was arrested on the orders of the public prosecutor's office and presented to an examining magistrate. The man was subsequently transferred to Schrassig Prison.
At around 3.00am on early Wednesday morning, a group of young people attacked a homeless man in front of the town hall in Esch-sur-Alzette. The man was beaten and robbed. The police managed to locate the culprits and seized a kitchen knife, a balaclava, and several drugs. The victim was slightly injured and was brought to hospital to receive treatment.
The report states that the young culprits insulted the officers throughout the entire procedure and were "extremely aggressive". Several fines were issued.
The driver of a car caught the attention of the police in Dudelange at around 7.00pm on Tuesday evening. The motorist drove past the local police station and suddenly accelerated as soon as she spotted some of the officers. The police were able to stop the vehicle a short while later and checked the driver. A breathalyser test confirmed that the woman was inebriated. The officers withdrew her driving licence and issued a temporary driving ban against her.
