German Father Arrested for Protecting His Daughter from Migrant Sex Attack
Charged with assault for stopping man put hand up daughter's skirt
A German man has been arrested and charged with assault in Munich after he defended his daughter from a migrant who put his hand up her skirt and sexually assaulted her in front of him.
The 42-year-old father was taken into custody by police after he punched a migrant in the face who he saw sexually assaulting his daughter.
According to a German news report by Merkur, the incident occurred at the Hackerbrücke train station when a drunk 28-year-old man from Eritrea reached under the skirt of a 21-year-old young woman and grabbed her buttocks while she was waiting for a train with her father.
The young woman’s enraged father punched the Eritrean in the face when he witnessed the sex attack, in an attempt to protect his daughter from further assault.
According to Breitbart, police filed sexual harassment charges against the Eritrean migrant, they have also filed charges of bodily injury against the 42-year-old dad.
Many online were outraged that police would bring charges against the father, with some asking why he should sit by and do nothing as the man sexually assaulted his daughter.
Munich federal police spokeswoman Petra Wiedmann said that it was up to police to investigate both crimes.
“It is up to the judiciary to assess the case.
"There is a suspicion that there were two crimes, one sexual harassment and the other a physical injury.
"The police are required by law to bring up both,” she said.
The attack occurred during Oktoberfest, Munich’s largest festival of the year which has seen a massive increase in security in recent years due to previous sex attacks at other festivals in Germany along with the growing threat of radical Islamic terrorism.
In 2016, the festival saw one of its lowest attendance recorded in years — while reported sex attacks rose – a year after the height of the migrant crisis.
Only a year later in 2017, Bavarian authorities reported a 91 percent increase in the number of migrant rape attacks with migrants making up as many as one in five suspects involved in rape cases in the region.
