    Violent crime against police officers has become increasingly frequent, according to a police spokesperson’s comments to German tabloid Bild.

    “These attacks are now unfortunately everyday,” said the spokesperson. “We cannot except that.”

    The incident happened as two police officials stopped at a hookah bar late on Friday night for a routine inspection at the establishment to check for minors present. But the bar’s Lebanese owners and clients confronted the officers.

    They were attacked by several “Lebanese-born” men and kicked, beaten and strangled. The female officer was given a “forceful” kick to the lower abdomen by the attackers before two employees stepped in and saved the officers by breaking up the fight.

    The policewoman who had been kicked also received bruises on her neck and was rushed to hospital.

    “It was a [routine] check that did not have to escalate,” the police explained “We will continue to send a patrol crew to such operations in the future. That must be done!”

    Only one of the assailants was arrested while the others managed to escape. Located in Essen, Germany, the bar is reportedly a meeting place for a Lebanese family clan.

    Correspondingly, the family of the 17-year-old that was arrested shortly after the incident, arrived at the police station and intimidated the officials present, threatening to “mobilise” their clan against law enforcement.
