German Police: 13 Migrant Sex Crimes in Two Days
Rash of migrant-linked attacks continues after poll finds German women no longer feel safe
A shocking total of 13 migrant sex attacks were reported by authorities in only two days in Germany this week.
On Tuesday the Südhesse police department announced that a 25-year-old woman in Weiterstadt was surrounded by four men she described as Arabic, who proceeded to yell sexually explicit things at the victim. One of the perpetrators grabbed the victim’s breast, according to police, before an approaching car scared off the attacks.
“A majority of German women no longer feel safe in their own country.”
Also on Tuesday, police in Bad Segeberg revealed that an Iraqi man tried to rape a 24-year-old woman at a nightclub on Sunday. Police in Schwerin notified the public that a Syrian teenager molested two German girls during school.
In Kleve, police announced that a man with “southern appearance” — a common euphemism in Germany for individuals of Arab and North African descent — exposed himself to a 48-year-old woman walking her dogs in a park.
On Monday, Mittelhessen police reported that a 16-year-old girl was followed from a bus and molested by two “southern” men in Linden, neither of whom spoke German. That same day, police reported that three girls in Niederwiesa were molested by two Libyans on Saturday night.
Police in Kleve reported on Monday that another man of “southern” appearance had exposed himself to a 15-year old girl, while Westhessen police reported that a man of “Turkish or North African” appearance had exposed himself to an 18-year old woman at a train station in Kastel the week before.
Police in Wolfsburg announced the same day that a 13-year-old girl was molested by a 34-year old Algerian on Saturday, while police in Stuttgart revealed on Monday that a man of “North African” appearance molested a 22-year-old woman in the Palace Gardens in Stuttgart on Sunday night.
In Saxony, police announced Monday that they had arrested an Afghan migrant for the attempted sexual assault of a woman in a train station Leipzig. The suspect is thought to have molested another woman at the same station earlier in the evening, according to police.
Also on Monday, it was reported Dusseldorf revealed that a 27-year-old refugee exposed himself to a girl younger than 14-years-old in a public swimming pool, while police in Bern reported that an underage girl was sexually-assaulted the previous evening.
LifeZette reported on Monday about the horrifyingly high number of migrant sex crimes that had been reported by authorities in Germany in 2017 so far — 24.
The 13 sex attacks newly reported by authorities on Monday and Tuesday brings the total to 37 report migrant sex crimes since the beginning of the year — representing a rate of over three sex crimes per day committed by migrants in Germany alone.
It is hardly surprising then that a majority of German women no longer feel safe in their own country. Recent polling conducted by the company Emnid on behalf of the Bild am Sonntag newspaper showed that 58 percent of German women believe public spaces are no longer safe for them.
Nearly half of the women surveyed said they believed immigration from Islamic countries has worsened their security, while roughly a third of respondents said they thought about buying pepper spray. After news of the poll broke, German magazine Focus ran its own poll asking German women if they feel safe — 92 percent of respondents said they do not.
