Munich police have detained the man who probably attacked people with a knife.

The lone attacker apparently went after passers-by indiscriminately with a knife, police said.

The man assaulted passersby in several places near Rosenheimer Platz in the eastern part of the city centre at around 0630 GMT, inflicting "light" injuries on four people, a police spokesman told AFP.

A motive for the attack has yet to be established.

About three hours after the stabbings, police arrested a man matching that description who had initially tried to evade officers. Four people received minor injuries in the attack.
