Essen – As Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung reports, Sunday evening, seven Syrian “youths” vandalized a store in the mall of the Essen train station.
Two detectives of the Tchibo store noticed how outside the store, a group of “youths” were harassing a woman.
They told the youths to behave. Upon this, the youths bolted into the store, knocked down display stands, and tore out shelves, to attack with them the detectives.
Two plainclothes policemen who were patrolling the train station came to help and called reinforcement. In the end, two dozen police officers were needed to overpower the adolescents. One detective had to be taken to hospital.
The seven young Syrians who are between 13 and 18 years old were released from custody later the same day. One of them was carrying a knife on him. Federal Police are investigating for damage of property, battery, grievous battery, and breaching the peace of the land.
The Tchibo sales ladies received psychological help.
