BERLIN, – German police and prosecutors are investigating a series of car crashes in Berlin on Tuesday citing that the suspect had Islamist motivation.

"Comments made by the suspect after his criminal acts suggest a religious Islamist motivation," the joint statement from the Berlin police and the public prosecutors' office said.

The perpetrator of the car crashes in Berlin is believed to suffer from psychological problems, based on the issued statement.

Investigators have not found any hints that the 30-year-old suspect was a member of any terror group.

Police arrested the suspect at the scene after a device in his car which the man said was dangerous turned out to be a toolbox. The man is now accused of attempted murder.

The apparently deliberate crashes, in which the suspect hit several motorcyclists with his car, left six people wounded, three of them seriously, the fire department said.
