At least four people have been injured after a knifeman went on a rampage in a German train station.

Police say the suspected perpetrator is at large after the attack at the commuter rail and subway station in downtown Frankfurt.

Frankfurt police spokeswoman Chantal Ench told the Associated Press that the attack took place Saturday afternoon inside the Hauptwache station.

Ms Ench says four people were taken to the hospital with stab wounds, but she didn't have details beyond that.

The spokeswoman said police are seeking to establish how many people were involved. She didn't have details of the ages and genders of the injured.
