German police said on Thursday that a suspected perpetrator of an antisemitic attack had turned himself in after investigators managed to identify him with the help of witness accounts.

A police spokeswoman said the 19-year old suspect was a Syrian citizen and had turned himself in at around noon, accompanied by his lawyer.

“At the request of the public prosecutor’s office in Berlin, he will appear in front of an investigating judge who will decide on issuing an arrest warrant,” the spokeswoman added.
