A group of “youths” got a little rambunctious last weekend in a bar near Dortmund, and in their youthful exuberance stabbed one of the bar’s patrons with a broken bottle. Two have been arrested, and a third is at large. The target of their attack is recovering in the hospital.

Group of North Africans attacks men in bar: Man (30) seriously injured when broken glass bottle rammed deeply into his back
Lünen. A terrible incident in the “Esco-Bar” in Lünen. During the night between Saturday and Sunday a brawl escalated in the bar. One man (30) was severely injured. Now a murder investigation is underway.
Around 1am a normal party mood was underway at the bar. Then one man (30) allegedly took off his shirt and exposed his naked upper body. “He allegedly took off his shirt,” says Henner Kruse, press speaker of the Dortmund district attorney’s office.
Suddenly a group of North Africans walked up to the man and other partying guests. The 30-year-old was attacked in the back with either a glass shard or a broken bottle, which was rammed into his back, and pierced his lung.
Other men in the bar, including the owner, intervened. Five to six more people were injured.
Two suspects are in custody
The police were called, and shortly after the incident were able to arrest two suspects near the bar. The 30-year-old injured man was brought to the hospital. He is no longer in critical condition.
The arrested individuals are facing charges for aggravated bodily harm. They are two Algerian citizens (27, 22) who are seeking asylum in Germany. At least one more suspect is still a fugitive.
“Two suspects are in custody”
Watch this space for the stern courtesy-slap-on-the-wrist.
The following quotes from the above translated article leave one curious . . .
Did the hospitalized victim die and is this “no longer in critical condition” another one of those clever/deceptive turns-of-phrase?
