Another stabbing attack occurred today at a shopping center in Cottbus. Last Friday, Syrian teenagers attacked a German couple there (Syrian “Youths” Attack Couple, When Wife Refuses To “Show Respect”).

Another Knife Attack at Blechen-Carré in Cottbus

January 17, 2018

Cottbus. On Wednesday, another knife attack took place at Blechen-Carré in Cottbus. A Syrian youth wounded a 16-year-old from Cottbus. Police are still hunting for the perpetrator.

As police announced tonight, the incident took place just after 3pm. The officers were alerted to a grievous battery at the street tram station Stadtpromenade. “According to initial investigations, a brawl ensued after a verbal confrontation and an insult. From a group of Syrian and German youths between 16 and 18 years old, who superficially knew each other from school and leisure time, a 16-year-old boy from Cottbus was pressed against a standing tram by a Syrian youth,” says the police spokesman Torsten Wendt. In doing so, a knife slash was inflicted upon the left side of the youth’s face. After the incident, the 16-year-old ran into Blechen-Carré, looking for help. “The victim was tended to by paramedics there, and then taken to CTK hospital for further treatment,” says Wendt.

Police did not announce further details. Criminal Police took over investigations. A police search for the suspect, who is still on the loose, and his accomplices, is still ongoing. Several witnesses of the incident were already interviewed in the early evening hours.

Translator’s note:

In response to Friday’s knife attack on the married German couple, one of the Syrian attackers, a 15-year-old, was expelled from the city of Cottbus and the entire parish, along with his father. The head of the municipal public order office stated that this was the first time the city has ever resorted to this harsh measure, as the youth was already prior known for violent offenses: “We declare the integration of the youth a failure.”

Also, an attack by unknown perpetrators on a refugee accommodation was reported.

As a response to Friday’s stabbing, even before this new stabbing, police have already announced they will increase their presence.

  1. An ancient Germanic custom, when someone could not abide by the rules of a community, was to declare him “outlaw” and put him out on his own. Maybe the old local independent spirit and common sense local action of earlier days can partly make up for for what the overall state should be doing.

  2. But isn’t this just passing on the problem to someone else?

    Scum like this perpetrator has shown zero gratitute, shows no respect, is not a suitable person to live *anywhere* in Germany. Why is he not expelled (there is a country called Syria, I’ve heard), after being finger-printed to make it more difficult for him to return?

  3. Chancellor Merkel made matters exponentially worse with her illegal open borders declaration. Compared with the 2007 figure of 350 knife crimes there were 3,500 such incidents in the first ten months of 2017, that is to say, as many EACH MONTH as for the whole of 2007, or more than 10 per day. The figure may well be higher: German police are accused of failing to report many crimes, so as “not to unsettle” the public.
    In Berlin last year 45% of crimes were committed by migrants.
