Grevenbroich The police arrested two Guinean men who allegedly raped a 35-year-old woman in a refugee residence in the Grevenbroich area. The two alleged perpetrators are in custody.
The alleged 17 and 20-year-old men from Guinea, West Africa, met their victim on the night of July 15 in Düsseldorf – at the time of the Rhein-Kirmes in the capital. According to information from our editorial team, they and the two suspects drove to Grevenbroich in a taxi. The goal was apparently a refuge for refugees in the vicinity of Hansendstraße in Frimmersdorf. That would have come to action. The two men are accused of sexual abuse of the 35-year-old.
According to the police, the woman fled behind the fact in a train and there revealed other passengers and the accompanying staff of the train. At the next stop, the 35-year-old, who would not be allowed to come from Grevenbroich, was received by the police. "Immediately afterwards, investigations were started against the alleged perpetrators," says police spokesman Daniela Dässel.
The suspects were taken into police custody shortly thereafter. In the course of the investigation, the suspicion against the two men from Guinea was hardened, so that the prosecutor asked Mönchengladbach for temporary arrest warrants. The arrest warrants were brought into action last Friday. Police investigations continue, Dässel said. The spokeswoman for the police explains why there was a period of time between the alleged act and the arrest warrants and that she spent a lot of time investigating and questioning her.
Neither the case nor the district police nor the Mönchengladbach public prosecutor wanted – because of determination – to call for tactical reasons. "According to information from our editors, it was said that the woman was drunk at the time of the crime, although she initially had a statement to the investigators, the district attorney Mönchengladbach, but not for an arrest warrant against the two men, would have been inadequate and it is reported that the police repeatedly tried unsuccessfully to contact the 35-year-old contact again, but they could not First find it, that also took time.
The city council did not want to make any statement on the location of the alleged events on Tuesday. "In general, we will not take a position in the current procedure," said Stefan Renner, spokesman for Grevenbroich City Hall. That was the job of police and prosecutors. Mayor Klaus Krützen was shocked by an act – "as it happens unfortunately all over Germany". The fact that refugees may be involved is "a difficult issue," said the head of the Grevenbroich administration.
Anyway, he sees that the rule of law has worked. "The men are brought to justice – provided that the act really happened as described," said Klaus Krützen.
