A 22-year-old Syrian asylum seeker was arrested in the German city of Augsburg for injuring four police officers after they attempted to identify him in a routine check.
The Syrian was initially stopped by German Federal Police just outside the main train station in Augsburg in what started as an initial routine identification stop, but quickly escalated out of control when the man began attacking the officers, who had confronted him after the found he was wanted for 450 euros’ worth of property damage, Presse Augsburg reports.
Initially, only two officers were attacked but as the migrant continued with his assault another two officers joined their colleagues to subdue him. The officers suffered injuries to their faces, arms, legs, and torsos but none were injured to the extent that they required hospitalisation, and continued their duties after the arrest took place.
The attack is not the first by a migrant on police officers in Germany. Last year, an incident caught on video revealed a group of around 20 migrants attacking officers in Göttingen in Lower Saxony after they attempted to relocate a 20-year-old Liberian asylum seeker.
