Germany: Sexual harassment by a dark-skinned man on a train

A 19-year-old woman will never forget this trip again: The woman from Garmisch-Partenkirchen was sexually harassed by a man on Wednesday on the train between Mittenwald and her hometown. The perpetrator has not yet been caught. The young woman had boarded the regional train at 11.36 a.m. Already at this point in time, she noticed a male person who was persistently trying to involve a young girl in a conversation on the platform. In the train, he finally sat down next to the 19-year-old and started a trivial conversation. According to Garmisch-Partenkirchen police, the unknown man - shortly before Klais station - suddenly grabbed the Garmisch-Partenkirchner's hip and buttocks with his hand and then stroked her along the unclothed thigh. The victim then hurriedly changed compartments.
The man is described as follows: 

- about 25 to 30 years old

- about 1.70 meters tall

- dark-skinned

- black curly/curly hair

- spoke very broken German

- dressed in a striking red T-shirt with bright lettering on the chest, black jogging trousers and black fabric/sport shoes. The person also wore a conspicuous cross (about eight to ten centimetres in size), which was attached to a leather strap, around his neck.

Witnesses who can provide relevant information about the crime or the perpetrator are requested to contact the Mittenwald Police Department on 08823/92140 or the Garmisch-Partenkirchen office on 08821/9170.
