A rejected asylum seeker has seriously injured a police officer in Dusseldorf by a deliberate bite into his hand. Although the 28-year-old officer wore gloves, he had to be treated with deep bites and suspected fracture in hospital, said a police spokeswoman on Tuesday.
The incident occurred according to derwesten.de in a Dusseldorf office building on Erkrather Street.
Since the 41-year-old migrant had refused to leave the building, and did not comply with the requests of the security staff, the police were called to site.
He had earlier had a “dispute” with a staff. But the police could not calm down the migrant. On the contrary, the “41-year-old” became increasingly aggressive, began screaming and threatening the officials.
As the intervention team tried to remove him, he bit a policeman in the hand and ran out of the building. However, the officers quickly arrested him and took him to the station, where a blood sample was taken and his “personal details”.
The 28-year-old policeman, whom the migrant had bitten, had to be taken to the hospital and treated. He is not working for the time being.
The 41-year-old asylum seeker from Guinea had previously started yelling in one of the Federal Office for Refugees’ centres and refused to leave. His asylum application had been rejected and the offer to submit a subsequent application had been rejected.
Finally, the police had been called to remove the trespasser. If a criminal case against the migrant was ever opened, he could not be deported until the verdict. Without the procedure, however, he remains the guest of the Chancellor and the taxpayer.
