Stabbing and shooting in Oslo

Police in Oslo had a busy weekend dealing with some unusually violent episodes in the Norwegian capital. Suspects were in custody after both a late-night random stabbing attack and a robbery at gunpoint followed by shooting on an otherwise quiet residential street.

A woman in her 20s was recovering at Ullevål University Hospital on Monday after becoming what police believe was a random stabbing victim. A man in his 40s was in custody, charged with the reportedy unprovoked attack on a street near Birkelunden in Oslo’s popular Grünerløkka district.

On Sunday morning, police were also summoned to the scene of an armed robbery of a kiosk on Hegdehaugsveien, not far from the Royal Palace. The robber grabbed cash from the cash register and then took off, brandishing his weapon as he headed for Grønnegata, a quiet street lined with apartment buildings. He fired the gun, but police still weren’t sure why.

He was arrested shortly thereafter and police seized his weapon.
