The two young offenders – 17 and 18 years old – addressed their first victim on Saturday night at a stop in Cologne-Ehrenfeld and suddenly beat him to the ground, as the police reported on Sunday. Under the blows and kicks the injured 25-year-old crashed down an escalator.
The 21-year-old tried to protect the victim and stood in front of the man lying on the ground. The perpetrators let go of the 25-year-old and hit the helper.
The alarmed police left the two drunken thugs still on site. One was arrested after he also attacked a policeman.
