Two young people have been arrested for stabbing and robbing a 19-year-old man at a playground in Aarhus last Sunday.

East Jutland police have arrested a 17 and 18-year-old and charged them with assault with a knife and robbery. 

A local resident called police just before 9.30 pm Sunday night to report a disturbance.

“The resident looked out of her apartment and saw a group of people,” said east Jutland police spokesperson Stig Heidemann. “She thought she saw a fight and an injured person on the ground.”

Heidemann said when police arrived they found the victim had been stabbed three times, suffering non-life-threatening injuries. He was taken to hospital and treated for wounds in the right armpit and the right side of his chest. He also suffered a flesh wound in one thigh. 

Police said that there were between 20 and 30 people present Sunday evening when the attack occurred.

The suspects were scheduled to appear in court in Aarhus today. 

Police said that the two were in the custody of the court of Aarhus.
