Germany: Afghans sexually harass 17-year-old girl and fight with teenagers who come to her aid

Last Friday in Stralsund in the area of Hermann-Burmeister-Street and Hans-Fallada-Street there was a violent quarrel between several German and Afghan persons. A total of four people were slightly injured. According to the current state of investigations, the dispute was preceded by a sexual insult against a 17-year-old German girl from Stralsund. Around 6:10 p.m., the adolescent was apparently approached on a playground in Hermann-Burmeister-Street by an 18-year-old Afghan and touched indecently. According to the 17-year-old's statements, acquaintances called in by her then came to the scene of the crime.Afterwards there was apparently a mutual, physical confrontation between the 18-year-old Afghan and the three young German men aged 18, 19 and 29. The young Afghan as well as the 17-year-old and their two 18- and 29-year-old acquaintances each suffered minor injuries, which were treated by local rescue services. All the men involved were under the influence of alcohol. An investigation was initiated against the 18-year-old Afghan resident in Stralsund on suspicion of sexual harassment, bodily injury and insult. The 29-year-old man from Stralsund also has to answer for the suspicion of bodily injury. Furthermore, the criminal investigation department is investigating the suspicion of a dangerous assault, as the 18-year-old Afghan stated that he had been beaten jointly by several people. Investigations into the crime are still ongoing.
