The arrested men were placed in different jails after attacking twelve people at random in Amberg. The four perpetrators are 17 to 19-years-old.
According to tabloid Bild, the orgy of violence began on Saturday at 6.30 pm. At the station, one of the refugees first kicked Nino M. (only 13) for no reason in the stomach, then hit Marco S. (29, landscape gardener) in the face.
A witness tells the tabloid:
“They called one of us a ‘nigger’ and attacked immediately. We wanted to run away, but they picked us up at the traffic light. There were at least six people. Three of my friends were beaten, I was beaten down and kicked.”
A total of nine people were brought to a nearby hospital and a man who tried to help the victims was also beaten.
The attackers were able to flee at first but arrested Saturday night. They are being charged with aggravated assault.
