On the last Monday at 07.15 pm, a 31 year old woman from Halberstadt was sexually harassed on the cathedral square in Halberstadt. A 21 year old man from Guinea Bissau as well as witnesses known by name were on the cathedral square. In this group was also the 31 year old woman from Halberstadt. In the course of time, the African grabbed the 31 year old woman suddenly at her breast and in her crotch. The 21 year old ignored the woman’s attempts to defend herself so that witnesses alerted the police.The man was very violent against the officers and attacked them with kicks. The African had to be handcuffed. An ordered blood sample also had to be taken under duress, as the accused put up a massive fight. The 21-year-old, already known to the police, was subsequently taken into custody.
