The first incident occurred on 18. November, a Sunday. Shortly before 21 o’clock, two Afghans in the city centre of saarbrücken of a group of people and have been violated to be attacked, such as the police spokesman Stefan Laßotta FOCUS Online said.

the Second incident: attack on hookah-Bar

Immediately after this brawl excitement in a nearby Shisha Bar: A 20-member group on a rampage in the restaurant, destroyed the glass front, an employee is slightly injured. The police considers that it is due to the temporal and spatial proximity to possible that it is the same group, which has attacked both Afghans.

About 30 minutes later, three young men, two Afghans and Iraqis, then, as a victim to the police. Two of the men were slightly injured, one of them had lacerations. This could point the police to a knife used as a murder weapon. Possible of this Detail in the “internal police was confused to report”.

As the perpetrators, the victims to identify at least a 20-year-old known to police, Afghans, in the short term detained, but then set free. A connection to the first three incidents, there is, according to the current Determination, not prosperity, says the spokesman.

The police denied a report in the “Saar brückener Zeitung” (SZ): The want to have know that a victim of the brawl on Wednesday night, a 20-year-old Afghan, a witness for the attack on the hookah Bar.
