Germany: Two asylum seekers brutally beat up an emergency doctor on duty -- The doctor suffered severe injuries from a bottle, including a craniocerebral trauma, a broken jaw, several broken teeth and cuts to her face

On Friday, 22 June, around 8 p.m., there was a physical confrontation between two so-called unaccompanied minor refugees and two caregivers in a youth centre in Ottobrunn. The 20-year-old Eritrean and his 17-year-old Ethiopian friend had violated the youth centre's alcohol ban. Asked about this, the 20-year-old physically approached the carers by punching them with his fist. These suffered head injuries as a result. While the carers informed the police, the two adolescents fled the youth centre. Irrespective of the events described above, an emergency doctor was called in at about the same time in an old people's home in Ottobrunn due to an illness of a resident of the old people's home. The emergency doctor crew, consisting of a paramedic and an emergency doctor, wanted to park the emergency ambulance of the Munich professional fire brigade in front of the old people's home when the two escaped adolescents from the youth centre passed by the location. Without any discernible reason, the 20-year-old Eritrean took a full whisky bottle with him and hurled it from a distance of about one to one and a half metres against the window of the front passenger door of the emergency response vehicle. The bottle broke the glass and hit the emergency doctor in the face. The doctor suffered severe injuries from the bottle, including craniocerebral trauma, a fracture of the jaw, several broken teeth and cuts to the face. She was admitted to a Munich hospital. The paramedic, who was also in the vehicle, was injured in the eye by flying glass splinters. Both adolescents fled after the crime, but were quickly arrested near the crime scene by police officers who were immediately alerted. The two resisted their arrest. The 17-year-old Ethiopian was released after police processing. The 20-year-old principal offender was taken to the prison of the Munich police headquarters. The public prosecutor's office applied for an arrest warrant today, which was issued by the competent magistrate.
