Roedering – A runner was assaulted and raped by an, at that time, unknown man on Saturday around 10 AM south of the Lake Sims.
She was running by herself, when the unknown man joined her for a while and chatted her up. Suddenly, he threw her to the ground, and despite her resistance, performed sexual acts on her right next to the road. Thanks to her massive resistance, the victim was able to free herself and flee. When another runner, who was an acquaintance of hers, came her way, the perpetrator fled.
Thanks to the description of the perpetrator, at the manhunt which immediately followed, the suspect was detected in the nearby nature reserve and arrested by officers of the police station Rosenheim. He is a 34-year old, rejected asylum seeker from Nigeria.
Prosecution Traunstein requested a detention arrest warrant against the man. The investigative judge confirmed it, and the man was taken to a place of detention.
A woman who was sitting on a park bench witnessed the conversation of the running future victim with the suspect. The criminal investigation department Rosenheim ask her to please get in touch under the telephone number 08031/200-0.

Leipzig: After brutal rape of runner, police recommend caution
September 3, 2017
A runner is raped so brutally near the Leipzig Zoo that she has to have emergency surgery. Police are hoping for help in the manhunt by the locals – and they ask runners to be cautious.
“If you are running alone, at the moment, you should thoroughly observe your surroundings, and look behind you after you have overtaken someone. If you can, then run in pairs”, police speaker Uwe Voigt tells “Stern”.
Police are still hoping for help from the poeple. Police are looking for, in their own words:
a man of medium size, about 25 to 35 years old
with dark hair,
a short, unkempt beard
of strong build
Police are looking into possible connections with other offenses.
According to police, the man had ambushed the woman on Friday before noon in Rosental, a park-like area of the Auen forest in Leipzig which is also popular with walkers. He dragged her to the ground, pulled her onto the grass, and raped her there. He beat and kicked her face so violently that she had to undergo emergency surgery in the hospital.
According to the runner’s description, the perpetrator was of a southern type, probably wearing a grey, knee-length trousers, a blue-green checkered shirt, and a light jacket. He wore a baseball cap in a muted color.
The victim much older than 50
According to police, the victim is much older than 50 years, but the speaker did not give more details. There hadn’t been a brutal attack like this in a long time. But they were investigating whether there was a connection with two offenses from a few days ago. This were difficult though, because there were no exact description of the perpetrator in these cases.

Munich – Finally! It seems that the low-life rapist from the English Garden is caught.
As police reported on Tuesday before noon, a 27-year-old suspect was arrested in connection with the sexual assault on a runner near Emmeramsmühle in December.
He is said to have attacked and overpowered the 45-year-old woman on the Isar Isle in the English Garden from behind. Then he dragged his unconscious victim in the bushes and raped her. When the woman regained consciousness, she managed to drag herself into a near-by guesthouse, bleeding from the mouth and with a scratched up face. She had to be taken to hospital.
It seems that the man had not only struck in the English Garden. A brutal rape from November 2015 appears to have been committed by him, too. The victim back then was a 29-year-old woman.
The alleged perpetrator is a Turkish asylum seeker, who had come to Germany in 2015, and has since been living in a refugee accommodation in Munich.
He is in custody. Despite the state of evicence, the suspect denies the deeds.

Bonn – The Ghanaian (31) who was arrested Saturday before noon at the river Rhine in Beul was living in a refugee accommodation. According to informatin obtained by Bild, he is a rejected asylum seeker who had been living in St. Augustin since March 3.
The man had come to Germany via Munich from Italy, and was apprehended by Federal Police in Kassel on February 9. He applied for asylum. His application was rejected in March. Bild found out that he had already applied for asylum in Italy.
It remains unclear why he was not deported in spite of the rejected application. He lodged an appeal against the rejection on March 23. Eight days after the deportation notice, he committed the crime.

  1. I is my impression that women are more frequently Liberal. Whether this is a result of not having (historically) to fight in wars or because being protected from harm makes a powerful state seem appealing is beside the point.

    Rarely has the old saying, “Be careful what you wish for, because some day you may get it!”, taken on such vivid meaning. The EU is one gigantic object lesson about why open borders and unrestricted immigration are such terrible ideas.

    Given that 44% of the women’s vote for her party (versus 39% of German men) played a significant role in getting Merkel elected, German women must now ask themselves who is responsible for all these rapists entering the country.

    Those German women who doggedly subscribe to willkommenskultur only have themselves to blame.

    • It’s really hard to generalize like that. Depends on their responsibilities. Women I got to know in various parts of the world have tended to be more “establishment”/ -centrist.

      At least in times of relative peace:
      “Don’t rock the boat – it makes the kids seasick,” and, “I can’t leave Grandpa while he’s on dialysis.”

      • Mama Grizzly doesn’t nurture invaders.

        Thinking about it makes me miss Sarah Palin. Sure wish she kept a more public profile, though I certainly see why she wouldn’t. Quite a role model, beats anything else out cold.

  2. The German culture is changing because of the immigration, returning to the time when women worded in the house and rarely left it unless with a man.

  3. Sexuelle Übergriffe in Franken

    Polizei sucht weitere Volksfest-Täter

    Vier Tage lang feiern die Einwohner der Marktgemeinde Hirschaid ihr Kirchweihfest: In diesem Jahr jedoch kippt die Stimmung. Drei Mädchen werden Opfer sexueller Gewalt. Festbesucher liefern sich eine Massenschlägerei mit Asylbewerbern.

    Nach sexuellen Übergriffen auf Jugendliche am Rand eines Volksfests im oberfränkischen Hirschaid hat die Polizei drei Beschuldigte festgenommen. Dabei handelt es sich laut Angaben der Behörden um drei Asylbewerber. Ihnen wird vorgeworfen, bei den Misshandlungen zugeschaut und den Täter geschützt zu haben. Nach dem Hauptverdächtigen wird noch gefahndet.

    Der Fall erregt über die Region hinaus Aufsehen: Wie die Staatsanwaltschaft Bamberg und die Polizei in einer gemeinsamen Erklärung mitteilten, sollen am Samstagabend zunächst zwei Mädchen im Alter von 13 und 16 Jahren von einer Gruppe Männer abgedrängt und von einem Unbekannten unsittlich berührt worden sein. Dabei sollen die drei Tatverdächtigen im Alter von 16 und 19 Jahren zugesehen haben.

    Hauptverdächtiger auf der Flucht

    Wenig später soll dieselbe Männergruppe eine 17-Jährige unter einer Brücke festgehalten haben; sie wurde den Angaben zufolge ebenfalls begrapscht. Den mutmaßlichen Täter des zweiten Vorfalls hielt ein Mitarbeiter eines Sicherheitsdienstes fest – der Mann wurde dann aber von den drei Asylbewerbern gewaltsam befreit.

    Während das Trio kurz danach festgenommen wurde, suchte die Polizei zunächst vergeblich nach dem Haupttäter. Ob auch er Asylbewerber ist, blieb zunächst unklar. Die Polizei suchte noch weitere Beteiligte aus der Gruppe und bittet Zeugen der Vorfälle um Mithilfe. Unklar war zunächst auch, wie viele Personen die Mädchen bedrängten.

    Massenschlägerei mit Bierkrügen

    Die Festgenommenen kommen aus dem Irak und Syrien und haben laut Staatsanwaltschaft Asyl in Deutschland beantragt. Ein Richter erließ noch am Wochenende Haftbefehl. Sie sitzen nun in Untersuchungshaft. Nach den sexuellen Übergriffen war es nach Polizeiangaben gegen 23.00 Uhr zudem zu gewalttätigen Auseinandersetzungen zwischen “zwei größeren Gruppen” aus Einheimischen und Asylbewerbern gekommen. Dabei habe es eine Schlägerei gegeben, bei der auch Bierkrüge geflogen sein sollen.

    Wie der Bürgermeister der 12.000 Einwohner zählenden Marktgemeinde Hirschaid, Klaus Homann, im Bayerischen Rundfunk berichtete, gerieten bei der Schlägerei Anhänger einer nicht näher genannten rechten Gruppierung mit Asylbewerbern aneinander. Die Rechten hätten demnach bereits am Tag vor den Übergriffen Flugblätter verteilt und sich “sehr aggressiv” verhalten. Samstagnacht sei die Situation dann eskaliert, hieß es. Die Polizei entsandte zusätzliche Einsatzkräfte. Das Volksfest rund um die Kirchweihe St. Vitus begann am Freitag und endet am Abend mit einem Abschlussfeuerwerk.
