Sunday evening, March 11 at 8:30 p. m., seven young men on the street "Zwölfling" were sexually harassing three young women (14,16,16). The teenage girls met a group of young men at about 7 p. m. in downtown Essen and started talking. They walked together along Kettwiger Strasse between the Rathausgalerie and Essen Cathedral. When the women said goodbye, they were suddenly harassed and immorally touched by the men's group. As a result, the men sexually harassed at least two of these girls. By kicking and hitting, the young women managed to escape from the group and were able to flee. Around 10 pm they informed the police. The seven men are between 15 and 17 years of age, have a southern appearance and conversed partly in presumably Arabic language. Two people were corpulent, one of them was wearing braces. The investigator in charge of the Criminal Commissioner's office is now urgently looking for witnesses who can provide information about the events or the men in the group. The police will take any information under the telephone number 0201/829-0.
