A 21-year-old Syrian refugee was arrested by police in Germany after attacking and killing a woman and injuring two others with a machete.

The machete attack happened in downtown Reutlingen, near Stuttgart in the south-west of the country.

The terrorist was arrested by police following the attack outside a kebab shop, local media reported.

“The attacker was completely out of his mind. He ran with the machete behind a police patrol car,” an eyewitness said.

Unconfirmed reports have said the female victim worked at the kebab shop.

Police said the motive for the attack is still unclear, and they are still investigating the incident.

The attack comes days after the shooting rampage at a Munich shopping mall on Friday which left nine people dead, and an ax attack on a train a week ago that left at least five people seriously wounded.
