Germany: A migrant aid worker is threatened and robbed by his Syrian refugees with knives

Two 19- and 23-year-old men are accused by the police of having threatened a 42-year-old social worker with two knives and robbed his money in an apartment in the Minden district of Kutenhausen on Sunday. Then they let the man go. Alarmed policemen arrested the duo a little later in the house on Kutenhauser Dorf street. The emergency forces were able to prevent an escape attempt by the alleged 19-year-old principal offender. The victim remained unharmed. According to police investigations to date, the pedagogue, who works for a youth welfare agency, was in the 19-year-old's apartment at around 2 pm to help the teenagers from Syria fill out documents. According to the 42-year-old, the 19-year-old has been in his care for a long time. When debt settlement was discussed, the 19-year-old suddenly locked the door from the inside and pulled a knife. At the same time, according to the victim, the 23-year-old, armed with a knife and coming from an adjoining room, appeared in the room wearing a mask. While the 23-year-old behaved passively, the 19-year-old demanded cash from him. When he was able to leave, he was threatened that they would harm him if he informed the police, the 42-year-old continued. The 23-year-old lives in another apartment in the house and also comes from Syria. Both men spent the night in police custody and denied the accusations in their interrogations on Monday. In addition, they made different statements about the course of events. The public prosecutor's office has been informed in the meantime. Police investigations are continuing.
