The first attack involved a 19-year-old man not of Norwegian origin. He sustained multiple stab wounds to his upper torso. 

He was admitted to Ullevål Hospital in a then critical condition after arrival by ambulance.

Police have not given The Foreigner an update on his state of health yet.

The incident happened on Pilestredet just after midnight in the vicinity of St Olavs plass, St Hanshaugen district.

Witnesses said up to five people scattered in different directions following the attack.

Nobody was arrested at the time. Police would not comment on whether the attack was gang-related, but told NRK they do not believe the motive was robbery.

A few hours later, a 31-year-old Somali man was knifed in the chest in the second attack of the night.

Police were informed at approximately 3:30 am.

The victim, whose condition was reportedly non life-threatening, was in a room at the Sentrum pensjonat Hostel in Tollbugaten when it happened. 

He was also admitted to Ullevål Hospital. A 41-year-old Albanian man was apprehended at the address.

“The suspect is custody and will be interviewed during the course of the day,” Oslo Police District officer Finn Belle said to the broadcaster.

Thursday’s third attack involved an 18-year-old man of unknown nationality and origin.

He was stabbed in the throat at an apartment in Tøyen’s Hagegaten, located in eastern Oslo.

The victim did not sustain life-threatening or serious injuries, and was taken to Ullevål Hospital by ambulance.

Police arrested one suspect in a neighbouring apartment after being notified of the incident at about 5:45 am.

Officers say they are treating the first two attacks as being extremely serious ones.
