Koln - eighty German women sexually assaulted by group of men of “Arab or North African origin”. (NA).
GERMAN police has described a series of sexual assaults against women in Cologne on New Year’s Eve as “a completely new dimension of crime”.Officers received numerous complaints from women who said they had been assaulted around Cologne’s main train station next to the western German city’s famous cathedral on the night from Thursday to Friday.
Cologne police chief Wolfgang Albers says witnesses described the assaults as coming from a group of up to 1000 men whose appearance indicated they were of “Arab or North African origin”.
Some 60 criminal complaints have so far been filed, including one allegation of rape.
‘Katja L’, 28, told Der Express: “When we came out of the station, we were very surprised by the group that met us there”. She said the group was “exclusively young foreign men”. Keeping close to her friends, they pressed on:
“We then walked through this group of men. There was an alley through [the men] which we walked through. Suddenly I felt a hand on my buttocks, then on my breasts, in the end, I was groped everywhere. It was a nightmare. Although we shouted and beat them, the guys did not stop. I was desperate and think I was touched around 100 times in the 200 metres.“Fortunately I wore a jacket and trousers. a skirt would probably have been torn away from me”.
German news agency dpa quoted Albers telling reporters on Monday that it was “an intolerable situation that such crimes are committed in the middle of the city.”
Police have identified 80 victims of the gangs, 35 of which were subjected to sex attacks. Others were assaulted or robbed, Breitbart reports.
Police succeeded to arrest eight suspicious men out of the crowd. "They had all the papers copied this, residence certificates for asylum procedures."
A plain-clothes policewoman was reportedly among those attacked.
"We assume more people will come forward," said police chief Wolfgang Albers, who on Wednesday dismissed calls for his resignation.
The northern port city of Hamburg said it had received 27 reports of similar attacks at New Year's street parties. Read the full story here.

Sweden rape capital of the West.
As part of the evidence Michael Hess presented in court, he made use of whatever statistics existed on immigrant criminality in Sweden before the statistical authorities stopped measuring. Michael Hess tried to find answers to two questions:
- Is there a correspondence between the incidence of rape and the number of people with a foreign background in Sweden?
- Is there a correspondence between the incidence of rape and some specific group of immigrants in Sweden?
- 1960-1970s – 1.2 to 2.6 times as often as Swedes
- 1980s – 2.1 to 4.7 times as often as Swedes
- 1990s – 2.1 to 8.1 times as often as Swedes
- 2000s – 2.1 to 19.5 times as often as Swedes
Even when adjusted for variables such as age, sex, class and place of residence, the huge discrepancy between immigrants and Swedes remains.
