The suspect detained by police "very strongly" resembles the perpetrator of the attacks, Munich police spokesman Marcus da Gloria Martins said at a press briefing.

Eight people were wounded in a series of knife attacks in Munich on Saturday morning, but none of them sustained life-threatening injuries, police said.

The suspected assailant, a local German already known to police for theft and other offenses, was arrested a few hours later, reports AP. He attacked eight people in all, including a 12-year-old child, at different sites.

They said he was wearing gray trousers and a running jacket.

Officials believe that the suspect - who had a previous police record - has psychological problems.

The suspect didn't immediately give police any information on his motive.

They described the man as about 40, wearing a green jacket and grey pants, with a black bike, and carrying a backpack and a sleeping mat.

The police department said on Twitter that officers are looking for the assailant "with all available police forces".

The police have canceled an earlier warning for residents in the area to stay home due to the threat.
