welve people were injured when four young asylum seekers were attacked on Saturday night by caseless people they met under a veritable violence body in Amberg in the German state of Bavaria. All four have been detained.
A teenager ended up in a hospital, and the police tell about terrible scenes, writes the news magazine Focus .
The four 17 to 19 year old asylum seekers started their round of violence at the station area at 18:30 on Saturday evening. The first victim was a 13-year-old, reports Bild. They had beaten the boy in their stomachs, and soon afterwards they had a 29-year-old man, who they hit on their face.
Since then, the violence became more brutal. People who tried to escape were caught and in some cases thrown to the ground, beaten and kicked. A man at the station was also pushed down a staircase. A 17-year-old girl was stamped as “whore”.
The police describe the acts as “brutal and unfounded”.
But the four asylum seekers – who, according to Die Welt, come from Afghanistan, Syria and Iran, and according to the Mittelbayerische Zeitung for somebody who was known to the police – continued their round of violence on their way to the old town, where they again struck several people.
A 17-year-old was injured in the head and hospitalized for observation. The police report that the perpetrators were under the influence of alcohol and opposed arrest.
Amberg’s mayor Michael Cerny is “shocked” by the incident.
“We do not need such violence in Amberg, and do not want to see this here with us,” he writes on Facebook. “Of course, one should not generalize, but on the whole, these idiots have made peaceful and committed asylum seekers a disservice.”
