Several people are reportedly injured after a man went on a knife rampage in Vienna, Austria.
Unconfirmed reports say at least three people are “seriously injured” after the attacker “randomly attacked pedestrians”.
The three people are reported to be an Austrian family – a mum, dad and daughter – who were attacked outside a Japanese restaurant.
The attacker fled the scene near the city’s Nestroyplatz subway station and headed towards Praterstern station where he stabbed another person.
A major manhunt is now underway along the long stretch of road in Vienna’s second district Praterstrasse where the attacks took place.
The three injured victims have been rushed to hospital following the stabbing spree at 7.45pm local time.
An eyewitness told a local newspaper: “Suddenly women were screaming, then a man, then another woman.
“At first I did not dare to get out of it, but as more and more blue light approached, I dared to do it.
