… The unnamed victim is believed to be a Polish woman who worked at the restaurant and may have been pregnant at the time of the attack, German tabloid Bild reports.
Mohammad Alhelo told German newspaper, Stuttgarter-Zeitung, that the man had run into the restaurant swinging the machete around his head.
He said: “He ran with the machete through the restaurant and swung it over their heads”.
The 20-year-old, who worked at the fast food restaurant with the attacker and his victim, said he [was] refilling the drinks machine when the attack started and ran away in a panic.
Mr Alhelo said the attacker was arguing with the woman before he killed her on the street – he said he had fallen in love with the woman when he started working there.
He described the man as “a friendly guy” who had arrived alone in Germany from Syria around 18 months ago.
After killing the woman in the restaurant the man injured two more people before being arrested.
He said a passing BMW managed to run him over and afterwards he “lay prostrate on the ground and didn’t move”. …
The police has confirmed the attacker was a 21-year-old Syrian refugee but have not released his name. The motive for the attack is unclear but police said there is no evidence it is terror related.
