When an older man with a dog (dachshund or similar) passed by, she managed to escape from this threatening situation.When she arrived at her parents’ home, she described what had happened so that they called the police. The young woman described the suspects as five men with a Mediterranean phenotype  (in other words Arabs or Turks)- and as follows: 16-23 years old, slim, taller, broken German speaking and partly English, dressed in jeans, T-shirts, one in a blue and one in a grey jogging jacket. One is said to have had a scar over his left eye, one a wart on his eye and a gold chain around his neck and another one dressed in white sneakers. One of the men is said to have been called “Harat”. The young woman did not make any further statements. The investigation is ongoing. A detailed interrogation of the alleged victim, who is no longer in Dortmund, is still pending. The Dortmund police are looking for witnesses who can provide information about the incident or the persons described.
