A man was arrested for attempted murder in central Stockholm, the capital of Sweden Thursday morning after a police officer was stabbed in the neck while on patrol, the second attack against police in the city in a matter of hours.
The incident took place on the Medborgarplatsen on Södermalm, one of the Islands that makes up the historic center of the city and is known for containing a large number of older buildings.
A number of police patrols have been deployed to the city center, reports Swedish newspaper Expressen, and the city center including a local school was locked down.
