Two men aged 33 and 34 years jointly hit a 23-year-old and his 18-year-old female companion at the Bad Cannstatt train station on Saturday evening at about 11:00 pm. According to the current state of investigation, the 33-year-old Iraqi and the 34-year-old Moroccan suspects got into an argument with the 23-year-old on platform 3 of the Cannstatt station, as one of the men had probably previously harassed the female companion of the later victim.When the 23-year-old wanted to stop this behaviour, one of the two perpetrators apparently punched him in the face several times with his fist. Afterwards, they are said to have pushed the young man several times, so that he almost fell against a suburban train that was departing at the same time.When the female companion tried to stop the alcoholized attackers, it is said that she too was hit in the face several times. One of the suspects apparently then took a key in his hand and attacked the victim again. When several previously uninvolved travelers finally separated the men, the 33-year-old fled, but was temporarily arrested by a patrol of the state police in the vicinity. Alarmed rescue teams treated the two victims on site as outpatients.The 23-year-old suffered minor injuries to his hand and face. His female companion felt severe pain in her jaw due to the incident. The men, who live in Stuttgart and in the Esslingen district, must now expect a criminal complaint on suspicion of dangerous bodily injury. Witnesses of the incident are asked to report to the federal police by calling +49711870350.
