The 31-year-old man from The Hague stabbed three people on Johanna Westerdijkplein, near Hollands Spoor Station, on Saturday. The police shot him in the leg before he could be arrested. Upon his arrest, he shouted 'Allahu akbar', according to the news wire.
The man is known to the police and aid organizations due to "disturbed behavior". What exactly that entails, the police did not say.
The victims are a 21-year-old from Zoetermeer and two Hague residents aged 35 and 41 years. The police could not say anything about their condition to ANP.
