A driver in the German city of Chemnitz, may have prevented a rape on Sunday evening. After hearing a scream, he approached the two suspicious dark-skinned men in a bush, who then fled, the police said.
The young woman said that the two dark-skinned men had spoken to and harassed her at a tram stop. One of the perpetrators is said to have touched her private parts. She was then dragged into the bushes by the two. During the attack, the suspects had spoken to her in broken German and to each other in an unknown language.

The police in Potsdam are still looking for a suspected rapist trio a week after the sexual assault. After the rape of a 23-year-old woman from Potsdam, the police said they would continue their search for the perpetrators. It is being investigated intensively, said a spokesman police department. He did not provide any further details. Instead, the mother of the 23-year-old who reported the case to the police, spoke about the case.
Her daughter had described the suspects as “southern”. “Yes, I know that’s a problem. But it makes no difference whether it was a German or a foreign perpetrator. I and my daughter don’t care,” said the mother.
“My daughter has bruises and abrasions on her body. When she was examined, the injuries were clearly visible and are documented.”
The young woman had been shopping at a gas station on Saturday night and, according to her a group of masked men spoke to her in a language she did not understand.
