    First responders and bystanders help a victim inside the Düsseldorf Hauptbahnhof (HBF) train station in Germany on March 9, 2017.

    Seven people were injured when a man wielding an ax rampaged through a German station, jumped off an overpass and was arrested Thursday, NBC News reported.

    Three victims were seriously hurt in the 8:50 p.m. (2:50 p.m. ET) attack, Düsseldorf police said

    "We were at the track waiting for the train. The train arrived, and suddenly someone jumped out with an ax and struck at the people," the national newspaper Bild quoted a witness as saying. "There was blood everywhere. I have never experienced anything like that."

    Police at one point reported two people were arrested, but later clarified there is only one suspect, a 36-year-old man from the former Yugoslavia with apparent mental problems.
