Irish media reported that the stabbing victim is a Japanese man who was attacked on the street and stabbed in the back Wednesday morning in Dundalk. He died at the scene. The reports say the other injuries took place in other parts of Dundalk, with one person being stabbed and another attacked with an iron post.

Chief Superintendent Christy Mangan said police received emergency calls from three separate locations in the Dundalk area and were able to quickly apprehend the suspect, who was carrying a large fence post when taken into custody. He added that the first attack was reported at about 9 a.m. local time, and the attacks were spread out over 40 minutes. He said no motive has been established and that terrorism is being seen as one possibility.

"We will endeavor to establish the suspect's background, who they are and where they have come from and why are they here," he said.

Mangan said it was not clear why an "innocent bystander" would be attacked. Mangan said the suspect had been in contact with police two days ago when questions were asked about his immigration status, adding that he believes the suspect was seeking asylum in the Republic of Ireland.
