Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen was attacked by a man in central Copenhagen, her office has said.

The 46-year-old was ‘shocked by the incident’ on Friday evening, July 7 in the capital’s Kultorvet square, the office said in a statement, without providing further details.

THE MAN IS ARRESTED

‘Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen was hit by a man Friday evening on Kultorvet in Copenhagen. The man was subsequently arrested,’ the statement added, according to AFP news agency.

Copenhagen police also said on X that one person had been arrested and they were investigating the incident, but did not give details on the suspect’s identity.

The assault came two days before Danes head to the polls to vote in European Union parliamentary elections, which conclude across the EU bloc on Sunday.

HOW SHE WAS ASSAULTED?

Frederiksen has been campaigning with the Social Democrats’ EU lead candidate, Christel Schaldemose.Two witnesses, Marie Adrian and Anna Ravn, told newspaper BT that they had seen Frederiksen arrive at the square while they were sitting by a nearby fountain just before 6pm (16:00 GMT).

‘A man came by in the opposite direction and gave her a hard shove on the shoulder, causing her to fall to the side,’ the newspaper quoted the women as saying.

They added that while it was a ‘strong push’, Frederiksen did not hit the ground.
