Donauwörth: An Indian couple have been attacked near their home in Donauwörth by their neighbour. The attack occurred in Donauwörth, Bavaria, around 7:15 am on Friday 29th. The married man died later in hospital, while his wife received life-threatening injuries. The perpetrator from Guinea, is a 33 year old male and is expected to provide more information on his motives as police questioning progresses. At this stage the line of enquiry is focussing on a dispute between the neighbors which escalated into violence. The attacker is being charged with attempted murder.
The 49 year old male victim, originall from Kundapur in Udupi, was married with two children. He died from his injuries, which were inflicted with a kitchen knife. His wife sustained serious injuries but is now being treated in hospital and is out of critical danger. The children were unharmed and are being taken care of by the Jugendamt.
At this stage there is no indication that this incident was anything more than a dispute among neighbours which escalated dangerously out of control.
