Germany: Dispute in the train -- African men attack travellers

A physical confrontation between a previously unknown traveller and an equally unknown group of three people took place on Friday afternoon (15 June) in a regional train between Ulm and Ehingen. According to initial findings, the participants initially clashed verbally at about 3:45 p.m., after the traveller asked the group to be a little quieter. According to witnesses, one of the men is said to have grabbed the traveller's face and pressed him to the window, which is why there was apparently a scuffle between all those involved. Through the intervention of uninvolved witnesses, the group of persons could be withdrawn from the traveller. The alleged perpetrators, who according to witnesses were men between 25 and 35 years old African phenotypes, fled the train at Blaubeuren station. One of them wore a blue T-shirt, a blue beret as well as a conspicuously many golden necklaces and a golden bracelet. The second suspect wore a blue T-shirt, a blue bracelet and a red baseball cap, while the third was dressed in a yellow T-shirt and yellow shoes. The unknown traveller is also said to have been between 25 and 35 years old and to have worn a purple T-shirt, beige riding trousers and black riding boots. In this context, the Federal Police is looking for further witnesses, in particular the injured traveler. Relevant information can be obtained by calling +49731140870.
