From the Austrian edition of The Local

Two women and a man from the same family were seriously injured in a knife attack in central Vienna on Wednesday evening, local police said. The attack took place on the large shopping street of Praterstrasse, near a subway stop in the Austrian capital. They were taken to hospital with life threatening injuries, police said. . .the motive and exact circumstances were as yet unknown.

(A) 20-year-old Chechen victim also suffered life-threatening injuries in another knife attack, committed shortly after and in the same area as the attack near the metro.

Police arrested a 23-year-old Afghan suspect after the second attack, at Praterstern, but have not established if there was a link, broadcaster ORF reported. 

The family were stabbed outside a Japanese restaurant in a district with a revived Jewish community, twinned with Brooklyn New York. OE24, a local newspaper, reports that a witness heard the assailant shout ‘Allah-allah’ as he attacked, but that isn’t verified in any other report that I can find.
