Hannover – Saturday evening in a German small town: there is blood on the pavement, officers in white protective suits secure traces. The traces are from an incomprehensible attack, which shows how quick even youths in Germany now draw a knife and stab.
Crime Scene: Burgwedel in Lower Saxony, an idyllic small town of 20,000 people near Hannover. Early Saturday evening, a woman (24) and her partner go shopping in an Edeka supermarket.
Around 19.30 they meet two brothers, both of them Syrian refugees, according to police, 13 and 14. An argument ensues – it is still unclear why. But everything seems over after a short while, the couple leave the supermarket with their groceries.
But on their way home, after 100 meters, they suddenly find themselves facing the youths again. They fetched their big brother (17) – and a knife.
The argument flares up again. Then, one of the brothers stabs – the 17-year-old, according to the Federal Prosecution. The young woman is wounded, collapses on the open street, critically injured by a stab into her abdomen.
The attackers flee. The victim is taken to a hospital. The doctors manage to save the life of the woman in a dramatic emergency surgery, but her condition is still critical.
A manhunt is started, after a short time, police arrest the youths. An arrest warrant for the oldest brother is issued, the two younger ones walk free.
An investigation against the 14-year-old for dangerous battery is started. The exact motive of the bloody deed is still unclear.
