In Dortmund – man collapses bleeding in hotel – woman arrested with knife

A 58-year-old man collapsed bleeding heavily in a hotel lobby in Dortmund on Sunday night. A little later, according to the public prosecutor and the police, a 22-year-old appeared in the hotel lobby with a knife in her hand.

“The woman simply stopped and allowed herself to be arrested without resistance after the police arrived,” said the responsible public prosecutor Jörg Schulte-Göbel of the German Press Agency. The public prosecutor’s office is investigating an attempted homicide. As a possible murder weapon, the police seized a knife. According to the announcement, hotel guests provided first aid to the critically injured man. After an emergency doctor treated the victim on site, the 58-year-old was taken to a hospital. According to the announcement, there was no longer any danger to life in the afternoon. The man and the woman were not related to each other, according to prosecutors. According to previous investigations, it was a “meeting” in the hotel.

Victim is now out of danger

According to public prosecutor Schulte-Göbel, further measures and pre-trial detention will probably be decided on Monday. An expert should determine whether the woman may have a “mental illness”. Almost at the same time, another attempted homicide occurred in the night to Sunday in a residential building in Dortmund. According to the public prosecutor’s office, a dispute broke out in an apartment between two men who knew each other. In the course of this, the 29-year-old suspect and resident of the apartment stabbed the 25-year-old visitor with a “sharp object”. The victim suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to hospital after receiving emergency medical care. In the afternoon, there was no longer any danger to life in this case either. The alleged perpetrator is in police custody, according to public prosecutor Schulte-Göbel, the further steps will also be decided on Monday.
