Before the summer holidays started, a class of a Berlin elementary school made a trip to the Kröchlendorff Castle with 38 children. The goal was to learn team spirit, but it all turned out very differently.
During their journey to the Castle, the ten-year-old victim was threatened by his classmates, allegedly saying “We fuck you today”, to him repeatedly. Out of fear, the victim remained silent and did not confide his situation to his teachers. On the evening of the same day, his classmates finally made their brutal threat reality.
Two eleven-year-olds held the boy down as another ten-year-old classmate raped him. Two other students watched the abuse, but did not intervene, reports The Bild Online.
The three teachers and one assistant were unaware of what had happened. A week and a half later, it was revealed by a friend of the victim, who told a social worker at the school about the terrible events. After the incident became known, parents and police were immediately notified. The offenders were then, suspended from school.
School suspension for the perpetrators –
The main perpetrator, a delinquent aged 10, was already know for his propensity for violence. He is an Afghan, who is said to have lived in Iran, repeatedly hit his classmates. Following the psychological assessment, chances are slim that the perpetrator will be able return to a normal school setting in the future.
The two eleven-year-old accomplices were also suspended from school. Both of them, an Afghan and a Iraqi, have been transferred to another school. “I am appalled by this shocking incident. Everything must be done to support the injured child and his family,” said Education Senator Sandra Scheeres in The Bild. The young victim will also attend another school, because he does not want to return to his previous class.
