For this purpose he equipped with a folding knife with a fixed blade about 10 cm long and a pepper gas canister, intending to locate a suitable victim, first spray him with pepper gas and stab him in the neck or back while he could not defend himself.
He instead aroused the suspicions of a local police officer and was arrested before he could begin his attack.
