As reported by the Hanover police on Monday, a “man” raped a 38-year-old woman on the night of Sunday. The victim was coming from a laundromat on her way home, when she met two men in the district Linden-Mitte.
“One of the two spoke to her and demanded sexual intercourse, which the woman refused,” said the police. One of them is said to have chased the 38-year-old into a compound, pushed her to a fence there and raped her. When the man briefly left her unattended, the woman managed to escape. From her apartment, she then contacted the police.
Two foreigners were arrested close to the crime scene, thanks to the description given by the victim. A spokeswoman for the police told Berlin weekly Junge Freiheit on request that the two men are Afghans. Neither were detained by law enforcement however.
In Schleswig-Holstein Bad Segeberg, a man with a “southern appearance” attacked a senior citizen on Sunday morning. The alleged perpetrator first addressed the 76-year-old woman and then groped her and injured her. The victim had to be hospitalized.
As a police spokesman told the JF, that clarification in the case was imminent. The suspect is a man who may have been known to the police for similar offenses and they are awaiting further details.
The police in Eppelheim, Baden have been searching for a dark-haired man since Sunday night who is suspected of having sexually harassed a young woman. The 18-year-old was walking on Max-Kolbe-Weg, when the cyclist grabbed her breast. When the young woman defended herself, the attacker fled.
The suspect was between 1,70 and 1,75 meters tall and slim. The victim described him as a 20- to 25-year-old with a dark complexion. At the time of the crime, he wore a green T-shirt and long black sweatpants.
Also in neighbouring Heidelberg, a young woman was sexually harassed. The 21-year-old was first approached in a bar early Sunday morning by an Eastern European-looking man “with clearly sexual intent,” the police said.
When the woman disagreed, the man grabbed her buttocks and breasts. A little later, the 21-year-old left the restaurant and was followed by the man and his companion. “One of the men then grabbed her by the arm while the other man punched her face with a fist and made her understand that he did not accept a ‘no’ from a woman,” police said.
The second man was described by the victim as about 1,75 meters tall, dark, slim and with black, curly hair.
