Last Wednesday evening, an 18-year-old Iraqi boarded an Intercity Express train at Munich Central Station at about 10:45 p.m. and sat down in a seat. After all the other travellers had got off the train and the conductor walked through the train, she met the young man. She informed the traveler that this train will not continue. The Iraqi demanded to be driven to Prenzlau in the state of Brandenburg. In an initial informational survey, the 39-year-old train attendant stated that the man suddenly jumped up, grabbed her by the neck with one hand and choked her several times for a short time. He is said to have pushed her several meters backwards. Sometimes the woman is said not to have been able to breathe. With the help of a colleague she called in, the Iraqi from Prenzlau was expelled from the train. At the platform, he was taken over by the federal police. The train conductor from Ingolstadt complained of pain in the larynx and suffered redness in the neck area. However, she was able to continue her service. The federal police initiated a preliminary investigation against the 18-year-old for dangerous bodily injury.
