The 28-year-old son alerted the police. A short time later, a patrol actually found the 55-year-old father in Neustadt in Mainz, not far from where his son was staying. The emergency services asked the man to raise his hands. But the 55-year-old did not comply with the request, instead he suddenly reached “in the upper part of his trousers”, according to the police report. Police forces were forced to use a taser. They then handcuffed the father and arrested him.

When the man was searched, the all-clear was quickly given: it turned out that the man was not or no longer carrying the knife. The 55-year-old was not injured by the use of the taser, as reported by the Mainz police. The officers continue to investigate.
