Berlin (HRNW): Three Pakistanis accused of sexually harassing women have been arrested in Germany on Tuesday.According to German police, the three suspects were arrested after as many as 18 women have reported becoming victims of sexual assaults at a music festival in Berlin.
“The mostly young women said they were encircled and groped by groups of men on Saturday night in ways that recalled a spate of mob attacks at chaotic New Year’s festivities in Cologne,” said the police, “The women have reported that they appeared to be men from the South Asia region.”
The move came after three women filed charges against the suspects, leading to the arrests of the three men. However, two more suspects are still underground.
The police said that the arrested men were Pakistani asylum seekers aged 28 to 31.
