The attack happened in the south western city of Reutlingen near Stuttgart where one woman was killed and another woman and a man were injured before the attacker was arrested by the police.
Officers said that the man was a 21-year-old Syrian refugee who it appeared had a dispute with the woman before killing her.
They added it looked as though the perpetrator was acting alone and that he had no accomplices.
Pictures from the scene appear to show the knifeman lying on the ground with blood on his face.
Armed police officers can be seen pinning him down to the ground before binding his hands behind his back.
It is believed a man passing the incident in a BMW car ran over the man, knocking him to the ground, before he was detained by police.
The asylum-seeking Syrian man had been involved in previous incidents causing injuries to other people, police said.
However strangely… the German spokesman had no immediate information on when the man arrived in Germany, or when the previous incidents took place.
The attack comes as Germany is on edge, following a rampage at a Munich mall this Friday night (22nd July) in which nine people were killed.
And as well an 3rd separate axe attack on a train a week ago that left five wounded.
Far to many Germans are also fearful of any signs of a rise in crime or lawlessness after the country registered some 1 million asylum-seekers last year.
