THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) – Multiple people were injured in a stabbing incident in The Hague’s main shopping street Friday night, police said.

The incident happened in the city’s main shopping street, which was busy with people looking for Black Friday deals.

Pictures from the area showed several dozen onlookers kept behind police fencing seeking a glimpse of the area where the stabbing took place.

The Hague police said in a statement that they were looking for a man, about 45 to 50 years old, in a grey jogging suit.

Police spokeswoman Marije Kuiper told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that it was not clear if the stabbing was a terror incident.

Further details were not immediately available.
