Because of suspicion of sexual assault, the Sexual Offences Department of the Mannheim Criminal Police Office is currently investigating a 33-year-old man. In the night to Wednesday, around 00:50 o'clock the man from Gambia in the Neckarstadt-West in the area Elfenstraße/Riedfeldstraße is said to have addressed a 20-year-old woman. First he asked her for cigarettes, then hugged her and finally reached into her abdomen. He also asked her to have sexual intercourse. After the victim had pushed the stranger away, the stranger had first threatened her with beatings, but then left for the Humboldt School. On his way he threw several flower pots from window sills and leaned against parked cars before being arrested by the police, who had been informed in the meantime. Any witnesses to the incident - as well as other injured parties - are asked to call the criminal police on 0621/174-4444.
