Knives in Kødbyen send young man to hospital

The detainee is charged with qualified violence and will be produced in constitutional interrogation later Sunday.

It is unknown at this time what he meant by “stabbing”.

– There has been a kind of riot between two groups, but we do not know the motive, says the head of the investigation.

Asked if it may be gang-related, Anders Lykkegaard Nielsen answers that the police do not yet know.

Police became aware of the stabbing on Sunday at 00.07. The 24-year-old suspect was arrested in Kødbyen at 00.31.

The 24-year-old man he was affected by was immediately taken to Rigshospitalet.

Early Sunday morning, the chief of security at the Copenhagen Police, Henrik Stormer, states that the man has sustained “superficial injuries”.

Kødbyen is full of restaurants and bars and is a popular place in Copenhagen’s nightlife.

According to duty officer Henrik Stormer, the stabbing apparently took place outside.

Earlier Saturday night, a man was stabbed on the corner between Tingvej and Amagerbrogade on Amager in Copenhagen.

The man has not been seriously injured and there are no arrests in the case on Sunday morning.

Guard chief Henrik Stormer emphasizes that the two stabbings “have no connection at all”.
