A massive resistance against federal police officers employed last Thursday, around 6 pm, the officers of the federal police station in Gießen. Two officers were injured during the operation.
The reason was a 30-year-old man who had been spotted without a valid ticket while checking tickets on a train from Frankfurt to Gießen. The man, a 30-year-old asylum seeker from Libya, was extremely violent right from the start and attacked the officers massively with kicks and punches. On platform 2 he even tried to push a female officer into the track. Alcohol and drug consumption were not involved in this case. The Kassel Federal Police Inspectorate has initiated criminal proceedings against the man, among other things for resisting police officers. The Libyan is to be brought before the arresting judge today. Until then he will remain in the custody of the federal police. In Saxony, the asylum seeker has already been charged several times with such acts of violence.
