A Shisha Bar Brawl in Saarlouis

Saarlouis is a city in the state of Saarland in western Germany. The following video shows a brawl among culture-enrichers that occurred in and around a shisha bar in Saarlouis. As for what caused the imbroglio among these “youths” — it’s nobody’s business but the Turks’!

The article below from the local daily Saarbrücker Zeitung (also translated by MissPiggy) is based on a police report on the same incident:

Saarlouis — Fists flew in the historic district of Saarlouis late Saturday evening: At around 11.20 pm, several calls for help were received simultaneously both at the Saarlouis Police Inspector’s office and at the police headquarters of Saarland’s law enforcement.

The cause: Around 30 people were involved in a mass brawl in or in front of a shisha bar in the historic district. In several communications it was even said that a shot had been fired. The police immediately responded with a large contingent.

According to the latest information, around ten partially masked persons entered the shisha bar at the time of the crime and physically assaulted employees and guests. All persons were armed. According to eyewitnesses’ testimonies, batons and knives as well as firearms (probably air guns) were carried and used.

A 30-year-old man was taken into custody at the scene due to the quick intervention of police. He was detained while carrying an air gun. Three suspected accomplices (all male; 23, 25 and 30 years old) were found in downtown Saarbrücken [capital of Saarland] as part of the manhunt and were also provisionally arrested. According to police, a similar incident is said to have occurred in the historic district on Friday night. The police investigation is still ongoing.
