A 33-year-old man has died on Wednesday, late afternoon in the inner city of Oldenburg, Germany. Before being stabbed, he was arguing with two men aged 22, according to a police statement. Preliminary investigations seem to indicate the men were arguing religion, when one of the 22-year-olds pulled out a knife and stabbed the older man. He died at the scene of the crime.

One source claims a witness saw the argument was about the victim eating an ice cream during Ramadan.

The two younger men fled, but could be apprehended by a police patrol after about an hour. One of the 22-year-olds went without resisting, the other attempted to flee, but was found only a little later and taken into temporary custody.

According to the police, all three men involved were Syrian citizens.
