Austria: Presumed Arabs hold a pistol to the forehead of a female passerby

Yesterday around 1:40 p.m., a 48-year-old local female pedestrian was suddenly and completely unexpectedly held a handgun (black pistol, details unknown, index finger on trigger) with an outstretched arm approx. 30 cm in front of her forehead on her way to the main station on the southern sidewalk of Müller street in Innsbruck by one of  three oncoming men.In further consequence it came neither to a verbal threat, coercion nor to a robbery attempt. According to their behaviour, the three persons apparently made fun of themselves by frightening the victim. Whether the weapon was a sharp handgun, a gas pistol, a frightening pistol or just a dummy could not yet be determined.
Personal description:
Three teenagers aged between 15 and 17 years, about 170 - 175 cm tall, short black hair. They probably spoke Arabic. The person with the gun was dressed in a grey sweater and one person carried a black backpack on one shoulder.

The search for the three persons has been negative so far. Useful hints to the police Innsbruck-Innere Stadt are requested.
