A nationwide search has been launched for Kazakh migrant Yevgeni A. after he allegedly stabbed a man to death at a fair in Münster in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The police have released a mugshot of the 21-year-old Kazakh citizen and have urged citizens to come forward with any information about his whereabouts.

The victim, a 31-year-old father of four, became involved in an argument with the suspect on Saturday evening at the “Send” festival near a carousel. During the argument, Yevgeni A. is said to have suddenly stabbed the father in front of his child and fiancée.

According to media reports, Yevgeni A. was filmed during the stabbing attack. After police reviewed the footage, they were also able to identify his 24-year-old brother, who is also wanted by police. Although his brother has not yet been charged with any crime, he is considered a witness to the attack and may be helping his brother evade authorities.

Yevgeni A. has a record of violent and sexual offenses and was already on probation when the attack occurred.

Police searched the 21-year-old’s apartment on Monday evening; despite an arrest warrant, the police have not yet found the suspect. According to Bild, investigators believe the Kazakh national may have fled to the Netherlands with his brother.

“Our intensive investigation has led us to witnesses, and the meticulous investigation of the crime scene has us on the trail of the 21-year-old,” said chief inspector Frank Schneemann, who heads a homicide unit, on Tuesday.

The victim’s child is receiving psychological treatment after seeing their father stabbed to death.

Foreigners account for a huge share of violent crime in Germany, including knife attacks. As Remix News previously reported in 2021, a study from the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) shows that serious crimes committed by migrants involving murder or attempted murder are on the rise. The study was released shortly after a Somali asylum seeker stabbed three women to death in a suspected terrorist attack in the German city of Würzburg.

Germany suffers from at least 50 knife attacks a day, which amounts to around 20,000 every year. Nearly 40 percent of these attacks are perpetrated by foreign nationals.

As Remix News reported just months ago, Germany has faced a wave of attacks involving migrants stabbing their victims, including the now infamous case of an Eritrean migrant stabbing to death a 14-year-old German schoolgirl in Illerkirchberg.
