In the course of an investigation of an accident in the street Lammstraße in Pforzheim a policeman was slightly injured on Saturday afternoon.
According to the police, an uninvolved 18-year-old Turk approached the officers of the traffic police inspection and the Pforzheim-North district, who were just recording an accident, at about 5:10 p.m.
The man failed to keep the minimum distance that was required at times of the Corona pandemic and disturbed the police officers’ duties by heckling. He ignored instructions from the officers. When they tried to establish the man’s identity, the 18-year-old became increasingly aggressive and once again came too close to the police. According to the police press release, the man hit the arm of the policeman when an officer tried to keep him at a distance.
In the meantime, three other passers-by showed solidarity with the 18-year-old and insulted the officials. In addition, according to the police, more than 30 onlookers gathered, who also expressed sympathy with the aggressive man.
The police were only able to calm the aggressive mood with a squad of seven patrol cars and 14 officers.
