Earlier this week five stabbing attacks occurred on the same day in different German cities, with several hospitalised and at least two migrant suspects in connection with the attacks.

The attacks have generated considerable media attention in Germany, where this level of violence once was rare.

The first attack which started with a dispute at a local bar, happened in Cologne at around 4:40 am Sunday. As the dispute became more aggressive, one of the men involved stabbed another man several times, forcing him to require emergency surgery to save his life, German newspaper Bild reports.

Police later said they arrested a 26-year-old in connection with the case and that both of the individuals involved at the time were heavily intoxicated.

In the town of Lingen in Lower Saxony, another attack took place involving a 44-year-old woman who was dragged off her bicycle by two men and injured with a knife. The men soon fled the scene after the woman cried out for help.

Police in the area say they are investigating the attack as a possible attempted homicide but have not been able to identify the two attackers beyond claiming them to be adolescents.
