German-Armenian driver held down by bystanders after ploughing car through crowds of shoppers in Berlin.

The handcuffed man, identified locally as Gor H. due to German privacy laws, is seen being led to a black BMW and locked inside.

The man’s automobile lies buried in the front window of a perfume shop just a short distance away, while the critically injured individuals he just ran over lie on the street.

By witnesses’ accounts, a man drove “very fast” toward the sidewalk in an area packed with shops and cafes around 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday before slamming into a group of people.

Before he arrived at the store, he drove another 600 feet down the road, past Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.

Bystanders held him until police arrived and apprehended him, according to eyewitnesses. The arrest has been verified, but police have declined to clarify if they believe the crash was intentional or if it was an accident.
