Passengers shell-shocked after cop overpowers suspected terrorist as five people stabbed on train.

A HERO off-duty police officer managed to overpower a suspected terrorist who stabbed five people on board a train.

The horrific attack took place yesterday on a train in Herzogenrath, Germany, which was heading for the city of Aachen.

A top law enforcement official said the 31-year-old Iraqi-born attacker had been investigated for possible Islamic extremism while living in a refugee hostel in 2017.

Herbert Reul, state interior minister said the suspect struck passengers "indiscriminately and arbitrarily," according to Deutsche Welle.

Reul also said that "based on everything that we know so far," investigators believed the attacker was trying to injure as many people as possible.

He also praised the courage of the 60-year-old off-duty officer and passengers who had prevented worse harm.
