18 women are sexually assaulted at German concert, with victims surrounded by mobs of migrant men and groped in copycat attacks like those in Cologne
This is in the German press, here and here and elsewhere but the first English language reports I can find are the German edition of The Local and the Daily Mail
A group of asylum seekers sexually assaulted numerous women at a free concert in Germany at the weekend in attacks similar to those carried out in Cologne on New Year's Eve.
Three Pakistani men are already under arrest after 18 women filed complaints that they had been improperly touched, fondled and groped during the festival in the city of Darmstadt.
Three women went straight to police who were on patrol at the Schlossgrabenfest, a free music festival in the central German town, on Saturday night, a police spokesman told The Local. The women complained that they had been encircled and then sexually harassed by a group of men they described as being of south Asian appearance.
By Tuesday 15 more women had made complaints of being sexually assaulted at the festival, describing a similar pattern to the assaults and also that the men appeared to come from south Asia.
Police have said the number of complainants could rise.
Between two and three more men are still being sought by police as victims receive counselling and authorities try to cool down rising tensions against migrants in general. All the complainants said they were 'surrounded' before being 'touched and fondled' improperly at the annual free Schlossgrabenfestes music festival.The three arrested men are aged between 28 and 31 and are Pakistanis seeking asylum in Germany. I'm sorry, Pakistan isn't a cosy happy country, but there is no 'war' to flee and I don't imagine for one minute that these men are Christians or Ahmadis. So why are they 'asylum' seekers. These are economic migrants, pure and simple. All have been charged with sexual crimes (and later released from police custod?y) as the hunt continues for their accomplices.
