The 32-year-old is said to have climbed over the parapet and crashed.

The Bochum police said that according to initial findings, the man should have threatened the officers with the knife. The police officers in turn are said to have used a so-called taser, a distance electric shocker.

To clarify the circumstances and processes, the police headquarters in Bochum took over the investigation. A police spokesman said, among other things, the injured party should hear officials and neutral witnesses. The taser was secured.
