One person has been stabbed to death and four others injured in a frenzied knife attack in a Hamburg supermarket.

Police said a man entered the supermarket and stabbed a number of people at about 3pm local time on Friday.

“He struck out at customers without warning,” Heike Uhde, a police spokeswoman said.

According to German newspaper Bild, the man cried “Allahu Akbar” while he carried out the attack.

He fled the scene but was chased by witnesses who were able to restrain him nearby. He was arrested by police shortly afterwards.

German newspaper Bild published a picture of the alleged attacker in the back of a police car with a blood-soaked bag over his head.

Police said the attacker’s motive is unclear but he appears to have acted alone.

The attack reportedly happened in a branch of Edeka, Germany’s largest supermarket chain, in the Barmbek region in the north of the city.
