The police can not yet say anything about the condition of the two people who were stabbed at a NAV office in Bergen on Monday morning.

Police inspector Morten Ørn updated the press at a press conference on Monday.

At 10:02, the police were notified of the stabbing incident at NAV Årstad. Police were on the scene four minutes later, and a man in his 30s was arrested shortly after. Two people were found injured and were taken to Haukeland University Hospital.

Both are NAV employees. They were stabbed during a user meeting on Monday morning.

“Two employees were injured during a conversation with a (NAV) user. Efforts are being made to contact their relatives. We are also working on informing other employees at NAV Årstad,” director Jostein Hestnes in Bergen Municipality’s agency for social services told the newspaper Bergens Tidende.

“Tragic and dramatic case”

“No more physically injured people have been found,” Ørn said.

“Haukeland Hospital is working on getting in touch with their relatives. The Municipality’s crisis team has been notified. This is a tragic and dramatic case that affects many people,” Ørn added.

He added that the investigation is in its initial phase and that the police can therefore not reveal additional information at the moment.
