The two asylum seekers aged 17 and 18 are suspected of having first beaten a 53-year-old in the forecourt of the Regensburg arcades with blows. The man was injured.
After the attack, the thugs fled. A short while later, however, they mobbed and shoved a 75-year-old pensioner at the nearby bus station according to police. Due to the fall, the victim broke a leg and had to be treated in the hospital.
A 25-year-old who rushed to help the pensioner was also attacked and injured after being beaten. Just minutes after the incident, the duo attacked another man. The 49-year-old was injured and had to be treated medically.
The police and federal police succeeded in arresting the two drunken Afghans. They are now being investigated after at least four serious injuries. The police told the weekly Junge Freiheit, that they had already been accused of crimes in the past and arrest warrants had been issued against them.
The case is similar to the trial of violence in Amberg, Bavaria, where at the end of December four asylum seekers indiscriminately attacked, insulted and injured at least 12 passers-by.
In Berlin, rescue workers were attacked on Reichenberger Strasse on Sunday when they wanted to take a patient to the hospital. The rescue workers had to flee from an aggressive father, 44, and his son, 17, in their vehicle. They are both Turkish according to internal police message, but the media described them as “Germans”.
The ambulance crew was called to Berlin-Kreuzberg for “health reasons.” The son of a 44-year-old needed urgently medical aid, the police said on Monday morning.
The healthy father as well as his “sick son” started beating up the rescuers. On the street, the attackers continued hitting the paramedics and the three rescue workers had to lock themselves in their vehicle.
“One of the helpers was punched in the face,” said a fire department spokesman. Only when the police arrived, the rescue workers were able to return to the apartment to bring the “sick” patient to hospital.
The Berlin chairman of the Police Union (GdP), Norbert Cioma, commented on the attack: “Nobody needs to tell me that we exaggerate when we speak of an unbearable violence against our colleagues. When people are threatened, attacked and beaten in the face and protect themselves only by fleeing into the ambulance from further attacks, the escalation against the state and its employees has exceeded every limit.”
A few hours after the attack on the rescue workers in Berlin-Kreuzberg, officials in Berlin-Mitte were also attacked. Unfortunately, it is not an isolated case according to German tabloid Bild.
Finally, two migrants were provisionally arrested, although a third escaped after police used teargas on them.
