Authorities have managed to identify 12 men, ten of whom with migrant backgrounds, who are believed to have brutally gang-raped a 15-year-old German girl for over two hours in a Hamburg park last fall. While one of them was briefly detained, not a single one of them is currently in custody.
The shocking attack took place in September of 2020 at around 11:15 p.m. when the girl had been walking home after leaving a friend’s birthday party. As the 15-year-old girl was walking through Hamburg’s city park, her night took a horrific turn when she was approached by one of the perpetrators, who lured her to a secluded area, raped her, and then called his friends, who came and took turns raping her as well, FOCUS ONLINE reports.
According to a report from German tabloid Bild, the attack lasted more than two hours and was filmed by one of the perpetrators, although investigators say they have been unable to obtain the alleged video evidence of the gang rape.
When the alleged gang-rapists finally finished at around 1:45 a.m., they are said to have taken the victim’s purse and mobile phone before fleeing the scene. At that point, police were called to the scene and medical professionals managed to acquire nine different traces of semen on the girl. So far, however, investigators say they’ve been unable to obtain the alleged video evidence of the gang rape.
Now, more than a year after the attack, prosecutors say that they’ve identified the alleged perpetrators. Police initially identified five men as suspects, but then later identified two 20-year-old twin brothers who are also believed to have taken part in the gang rape. After subsequent investigations, police now believe that a dozen men were involved in the attack.
Of the suspects being investigated, all twelve are between the ages of 16 and 23, and ten of them have migrant backgrounds. Police briefly detained one of the suspects, but promptly released him. The rest of the alleged perpetrators remain at large.
Liddy Oechtering, the spokeswoman for the public prosecutor, said, “We are now checking whether or not to bring charges.”
As Remix News has continually chronicled, gang rapes carried out by foreign men have become common in Germany, a fact that the outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel’s federal government has consistently overlooked when claiming that Germany’s migration story has been a success.
The case in Hamburg is being compared to another case in Freiburg, in which ten migrants were convicted for raping an 18-year-old girl outside a nightclub, with eight of them from Syria and the rest from Iraq and Afghanistan.
In August, data contained in a report released by Germany’s Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) revealed that an average of two women or girls are gang-raped in Germany each day, with foreigners making up roughly half of the suspected perpetrators. Despite making up just 13.7 percent of Germany’s population, foreigners were involved in approximately half of all gang rape cases.
The BKA’s report goes on to mention that men from majority-Muslim countries like Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan are disproportionally represented as gang-rape suspects.
The same phenomenon can be seen elsewhere in Western Europe, as well.
Official crime figures in Denmark reveal that foreigners are vastly over-represented in rape convictions, with migrants comprising roughly one in four suspects found guilty of rape last year. Sweden shows even more troubling statistics.
