After the discovery of a World War II bomb in Augsburg, a terrifying brawl broke out on a bus that was in the process of evacuating residents.
While headed for Lechhausen, about 20 Syrian refugee men became enraged about the lack of space on board the bus due to a baby pram.
After a heated argument with the refugees ensued, the men proceeded to use the handles on the bus to hoist themselves up and attack women and the elderly, in efforts to engage them in a fight.
A post by Baron Bodissey revealed that the situation got completely out of control. “One person jumped into a pram, with the sole of his shoe in front,” a passenger said.
Translated excerpts from an article in the Augsburger Stadtzeitung revealed another passenger’s account of the brutal attack on the baby:
“Apparently the fight started and escalated in the back of the bus. One of the perpetrators jumped feet-first into a child’s pram in which a baby was asleep and stomped with his foot full in the face of the baby,” the witness said. According to the police, the 18-month-old baby and its mother were traveling with the group of Syrians, and apparently the child’s pram was the trigger for the fight.”
Emergency responders were called but the Syrian men started attacking them with belts, preventing them from providing aid to the injured baby.
Residents on the bus were terrified for their lives. “Other passengers, mothers and fathers with strollers, children as well as senior citizens, were in panic and trapped on the bus,” one witness described.
When the bus stopped and the driver opened the door, the Syrian men continued their rage onto the streets.
“My wife was injured from being beaten with a belt on her shoulder and neck,” another passenger exclaimed. He went on to say that the refugees also attacked the ambulance workers until “they were hiding behind their ambulance.”
The Syrian men finally allowed paramedics to access the baby, once police arrived at the scene.
The Augsburg police opened an investigation to determine details of the incident.
