Two women in Germany last weekend became the victim of brutal sexual assaults in two separate incidents. In both cases, the attackers were described as ‘southern types’, operating in small bands.
Carnival rape, crying woman in Leverkusen
On Sunday night, a 31-year-old woman in the city of Leverkusen was
victimised by a gang of three men in the district of Lützenkirchen. She
was attacked by all three of the perpetrators and subsequently raped on a
lawn by one of them. After the assault, the men fled in an unknown
direction, Freie Zeiten reports.
Passers-by had, later on, found the crying woman sitting in the
streets. She was dressed up as a hippie since she had been out
According to the victim, the men were dressed in dark clothes, in
between 20 and 30 years of age, and all had a ‘southern appearance’.
This usually means they come from countries such as Algeria, Tunisia,
Morocco and Egypt.
The police are asking the public for help, and an arrest has yet to be made in this case.
Violent gang rape on Hamburg riverbank
In Hamburg, two men on Sunday evening sexually assaulted a
46-year-old woman after beating her. The violent gang rape took place
near a bridge called the Lombardsbrücke, which is located on the
riverbank of the Alster.
On Monday morning, the injured victim went to a hospital where she was investigated and treated, Focus.de and other local media report. Afterwards, she spoke to police to file a complaint.
In this case, as well, the woman referred to the rapists as being of
southern descent, meaning Northern Africans or, in German police lingo,
the so-called ‘Nafri’s’. She could not describe the assailants more
During the interrogation, the victim mentioned an elderly couple
passing by the location of the attack. They may be important witnesses,
police have stated.
Cologne’s NYE changed everything
Sexual violence appears to be on the rise in Germany, where this
category of felonies is often committed by refugees and other migrants.
Public attention to the problem skyrocketed after the so-called ‘taharrush‘ in the city of Cologne, where on the New Year’s Eve of 2015/2016
several hundreds of girls and young women were stripped, groped (some
even raped), and robbed by some thousand Nafri’s and Arabs, virtually
all of whom have escaped punishment for their crimes. Since then, German police are on the alert.
