Germany: 4 African men harass a woman and afterwards beat her with a beer bottle and fists-- A man who comes to her aid is also beaten up.

Four men between the ages of 20 and 21 expect to be charged with dangerous assault. The quartet of Ghambic/Ethiopian nationality is accused of beating a 36-year-old passer-by and a 25-year-old man on Sunday evening in Saarland Street in the town of Offenburg. According to initial investigations, one of the four later attackers had complimented the woman shortly before 9 p.m. as she passed by. After the lady had turned away unimpressed from the advances and ran away, the initial courtesy of the unknown turned into aggression. The woman in her mid-thirties, who had just been courted, was suddenly attacked with blows and a beer bottle, which a witness had noticed. When he rushed to help the victim, three of the attacker's companions stepped in and attacked the helper.The four men did not abandon it until the police officers called by other witnesses approached. After a short escape of the quartet from the approaching policemen, the provisional arrest of three suspects succeeded shortly afterwards in the Phillip-Reis Street. A fourth suspected assailant was arrested by officers of the federal police in the Mühlbach watercourse. Since he had defended himself and also slightly injured two policemen, he is expected to face additional charges of resistance against police officers and assault. Fortunately, the 36-year-old, who was attacked at the beginning, and the witness who came to her aid were only slightly injured. The four suspects were released after completion of police operations.
