Germany: Migrant mobs united against law enforcement

At the state's initial reception facility in Ellwangen, Baden-Württemberg, several migrants attacked security personnel and injured six employees.

    The police were called in on Sunday evening with a contingent of 30 officers. In addition, twelve rescue workers had to come. The police are investigating the perpetrators for committing dangerous bodily harm.

    According to police information, a 13-year-old Afghan and a 43-year-old from Gambia got into a dispute over a water bottle in the canteen. When the Gambian hit the Afghan in the face, the security guards tried to intervene and defuse the situation.

    Quite quickly, the aggression of the two fighting parties was then directed against the employees of the reception center instead. In fact, all the Africans present started attacking them. After the immigrants were driven out of the canteen, around 15 Africans armed themselves with chairs and broken glass and pushed into the building again.

    The police said that the rest of the Africans were watching and calling on the attackers to injure the personnel. In addition to the six wounded security forces, the Afghan and Gambian who had started the fight also sustained injuries.

    A large-scale police operation was also necessary on Monday in an asylum accommodation in Geldersheim, Lower Franconia, after the residents first protested against the quarantine regulations, but later attacked the employees and the police.

    According to the police, around 100 demonstrators mobbed together in the morning. In the afternoon, migrants boycotted the food supply and around 30 people “massively” attacked the emergency services, with one of the immigrants biting an official in the thigh.

    In addition to two police helicopters, the Schweinfurt police, the operational supplementary services Schweinfurt and Würzburg, the riot police in Würzburg and also the riot police in Nuremberg were on duty from six in the morning to seven in the evening.

    Some 16 asylum seekers were arrested and are being investigated for dangerous bodily harm and coercion. In addition, the police said they were using video material to investigate other possible crimes.

    In yet another incident involving migrants, a mob of around 200 people tried to prevent the arrest of an 18-year-old on Tuesday in the Marxloh district of Duisburg. Some of the people had a “clan connection” , a police spokesman told the news agency dpa.

    The young man was searched by a patrol but resisted. After he tried to escape, the police arrested him in a hallway. Several people were therefore disabled by the officials. Meanwhile, around 200 people gathered in front of the house to stop the arrest. Only the reinforcements summoned could hold back the clan attack. The police arrested two other people for violent resistance.

    Similar scenes of clan solidarity had already occurred in the Marxloh district on Sunday evening. An 18-year-old also sought by the police had been recognized by patrol officers. After his arrest, around 30 family members intervened. According to a police spokesman, they shouted at the officers and filmed them. The situation was brought under control by additional security forces.

    The young man’s 17-year-old sister was also arrested after attacking the police. Her brother had been searched on suspicion of being involved in an attack on a 44-year-old. Two officers were slightly injured in the operation.
