Two teenagers, both aged 18, have been arrested on Monday morning in connection to the incident.

The incident happened on September 17, the day the world’s most famous beer festival kicked off after it was cancelled two years in a row.

The condition of the British tourist remains unclear.

Five residential properties were searched in Munich while officers are trying to locate the weapon.

German investigators believe the stabbing is related to a drug deal that went wrong, br.de reports.

Authorities said that during the prearranged meeting the two suspects attacked the Brit, leaving him with serious injuries in the upper body.

The suspects are believed to have fled the scene after robbing the alleged victim.

One of them is now being investigated for attempted murder while the other 18-year-old has been accused of aggravated robbery.

Both men are already known to the authorities.
