On Friday and Saturday night, a festival in the German town of Essen was the latest location for sexual attacks by migrants. According to the German paper Westen Allgemeine Zeitung, there were at least ten separate incidents with seven migrants arrested for groping and harassing women
So far four of the seven men arrested were confirmed to be migrants from the regions of North Africa and the Middle East. The migrant suspects who lived in nearby asylum homes were detained and later released after being questioned.
An attack on Saturday involved two 18 to 25-year-old migrant men who approached and molested a group of 18-year-old girls. Police say plain clothed police officers acted immediately after seeing the attack. When they confronted the attackers, they fought back until the officers were able to arrest them.
According to reports, sexual attacks were not the only crimes committed by migrants at the festival. Several people at the festival claimed that migrant men had harassed them, pick-pocketed them and violently attacked them.
Authorities across Germany are worrying that migrant crime at German festivals will continue to occur. This has even prompted the organizers of Germany’s Oktoberfest to consider banning backpacks for security reasons.
