Sexual assaults were ‘regrettable individual case’ says mayor

The mayor of the Brandenburg town of Lübben, in Germany, has described the attack on several women by asylum seekers as a "regrettable individual case".

    It is the first such incident in a long time, of which the city administration became aware, leftist Mayor Lars Kolan told the regional daily Lausitzer Rundschau. “Therefore, it was a regrettable individual case.”

    On Wednesday shortly after midnight, three women were sexually harassed and attacked at the Spreelagune by two Afghans. The police said the two asylum seekers first asked for cigarettes. The younger of the two suddenly grabbed the head of a 31-year-old and kissed her. When a companion intervened, she was strangled by the other Afghans and held under.

    The woman was only able to free herself by a kick. The police caught the two suspects a short time later. While the 19-year-old tried to escape, the 25-year-old injured a policeman. The officials took the two asylum seekers into custody. A test showed that they had been under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

    The district’s migration commissioner, Antje Pretky, said the majority of asylum seekers behaved positively. Incidents of this kind are “very rare” in the region. “Lübben is otherwise really quiet, and the integration is going well.”

    Nevertheless, it has to be shown that such behavior has consequences she said. If the results of the investigation lead to a conviction, “it will certainly be the case that we will be deporting them”. A criminal investigation by police is looking into sexual assault and resisting law enforcement officers.

    In Bavaria, police arrested two asylum seekers on Tuesday, allegedly raping a young woman last week in Rosenheim. The two Somali citizens were presented to the investigating judge, the police headquarters Upper Bavaria South announced on Wednesday.

    Accordingly, a witness statement led to the arrest of a suspect. Police officers arrested the 27-year-old man in downtown Rosenheim. His alleged accomplice was arrested shortly thereafter in a specialist hospital in nearby Wasserburg.

    The police had set up a special investigation team for the case. In total, ten police officials were working to clear up the crime.

    The two asylum seekers now have to answer for joint rape and assault. They were taken to various detention centers.
