According to the current state of investigation, two unknown culprits abruptly attacked a 51-year-old top manager on a walkway in the park at Karl-August-Jung-Platz. The injured party is a board member of the energy utility Innogy, which is based in Essen.
Two men with a “Mediterranean appearance” between 20 to 30 years old, is currently wanted by police. An investigation into the attack has been opened at the Police Headquarters in Düsseldorf. The property of the victim was hermetically sealed off on early Sunday evening. A police force of around 50 police officers was on hand to investigate.
The seriously injured victim was flown to a special clinic, said a spokeswoman for the police in the city. For a possible motive of the perpetrators, there are so far no clues.
It could be in connection with disputes over the brown coal open pit at the Hambacher Forst, the spokeswoman speculated. Activists have been hampering preparations for the opencast mine for months.
The crime is strongly reminiscent of the atrocities of the left-wing Red Army faction – a predecessor of the AntiFa – against boardmembers of German companies and industrial leaders.

Criminals in London – mostly with a Pakistani or Arab migration background – are increasingly using corrosive liquids as a weapon.
In the criminal jargon of youth gangs they are called “facial smelters”. This is the creepy term for aggressive chemicals used by young men in particular to attack their victims in the British capital.
The number of cases of intentionally injured people with caustic substances in London has skyrocketed. London Metropolitan Police said the attacks increased six-fold over six years, concentrated in the eastern immigrant areas in London.
Members of rival gangs have switched to acid after confiscation of knives and firearms increased, according to criminologist Simon Harding of Middlesex University in London.
“Acid is used as a weapon of choice, not as a last resort, and that’s completely new,” said Harding in an interview with the German Press Agency.
