People including employees of an asylum home in the German town of Guben are said to have been injured after a migrant went after employees armed with a hatchet.

Two men at the asylum home were sent to the hospital as a result of the incident which saw a 20-year-old Syrian become violent after a dispute between him and two other migrants, Lausitzer Rundschau reports.

The 20-year-old is said to have been in an argument first with a 22-year-old who he injured with a knife, and then a 26-year-old who he bit on the shoulder.

When employees of the asylum home tried to intervene in the ongoing violence they were allegedly attacked by the 22-year-old, who police claim was armed with a hatchet.
