Three people have been injured in a knife attack in the heart of the EU district in Brussels.
One victim suffered serious injuries, two people were slightly injured, police said.
Previously there was talk of an injury.
A man was arrested in Monday night's incident.
According to the news agency, a dpa reporter observed in the Schuman subway station how a young man in a black and white T-shirt was arrested by the police.
A few minutes earlier, according to dpa, passers-by had shouted: "He has a knife".
In the evening, Brussels Mayor Philippe Close wrote on Twitter: Good police cooperation led to a quick arrest.
Several police officers with dogs were also on duty at the Schuman stop during the arrest, shielding the area.
Right in front of the European Commission, rescue workers took care of passers-by.
The Schuman station is right between important EU institutions and is used by many EU employees.
As the Brussels transport company announced on Twitter, local public transport in the area around the Schumann stop was partially suspended.
