Hamburg — School is out, and on their way home from the district school, Luca (12, name changed) and a friend quickly go to the kiosk. But they get attacked. The attacker demands their phones and money, then stabs his victims with a knife.
The attacker is still a child too!
Luca can’t forget the scenes how his Turkish classmate Ahmed (12, name changed) threatened him: “He held a jackknife to my chest. When I did not hand over my phone, he immediately stabbed me. I got stabbed in the groin, four times.”
The smart phone in his pocket halted the knife. Luca’s buddy fends off stabs to his chest with his bare hands. In the end, the perpetrator makes the boys lie down, kicks them, and collects their mobile phones.
Lucas’ father Toni (45) immediately alerts the police. Eight officers search the perpetrators’ apartment the same day, and find the weapon used in the attack. Police confirm the incident to Bild. A spokesman: “Investigations are still ongoing.”
And the school? “They did nothing at all! They are s****ing their pants”, laments the father, Toni. The underage offender was suspended from school for eleven days, but returned to a parallel class, and his schoolyard ban is not monitored.

Ahmed is no unknown quantity. Just a week before the deed, he allegedly showed up at the schoolyard with a realistic-looking gun and threatened to shoot teachers. And this was reportedly not the first time he caused trouble.
Almost two months after the deed, the school finally reacted. Ahmed was suspended and attends a different school now. It is a relief for Luca. But the problem has only been relocated.
