An Italian tourist couple was chased Sunday afternoon by a man with a knife in the area between Havnelageret and Børsen in Oslo city center.


The incident occurred at 13:00 Sunday afternoon.

“We received many phone calls that someone was calling for help and was being chased by a man with a knife. We had a patrol nearby and arrested two people, but we did not find the knife. We have taken the statements of the Italian couple,” said Tore Solberg, Operations Manager in Oslo Police District to NTB.

The Italian couple were chased around in traffic, between cars and sought refuge in a bus that had stopped.

No one was hurt and the progress of the incident is not known.
