Man Complained About the Noise

Dresden — Brutal attack on a passenger (36) in a Dresden bus. A 36-year-old man had boarded a bus in Dresden-Gruna at about 10.30 p.m. and complained about a group of noisy children and teenagers. Police spokesman Marko Laske (45): “The man asked the group to be a little quieter. A 12-year-old boy then hit him on the head with an emergency hammer.”
The man suffered a head wound and had to be treated at an emergency room. The police assume that the hammer was stolen on the bus by the Afghan-born boy shortly before the crime. Although the crime happened last Friday, it was not reported in the police report. Laske: “The reason in this case is the particularly protection-worthy interest of the criminal child.” The police will investigate the case, but the perpetrator gets away with it.
