Shopkeeper stabbed to death

Police in Norrköping in eastern Sweden are searching for two people, a man and a woman, suspected of stabbing and killing a 55-year-old store owner at his place of work on Thursday evening.

The victim was taken to the city’s Vrinnevi Hospital from his store in the Hageby district but doctors were unable to save his life.

Police have launched a murder investigation.

“We are looking for two suspected perpetrators, a woman aged around 25 and a man of around 40,” police spokesman Anders Månsson told news agency TT.

Witnesses saw the pair fleeing towards the city centre after the attack. The woman had dark, shoulder-length hair and was wearing a mid-length coat. The man was described as well-built and balding with dark hair.

Police have not established a motive for the attack.
