    Sexual assaults and thefts like the ones that happened in Cologne on New Year's Eve also happened elsewhere in Germany, Deutsche Welle wrote, citing a police report leaked to the press.

    The confidential report, prepared for regional interior ministers by the Federal Criminal Police Office, contained a list of sex attacks and muggings in public places reported in 12 German states.

    According to the report, 27 such incidents were registered in Bavaria, most of them in Nuremberg and Munich. In Bremen, there were 11 reports, in Berlin six and in Baden-Wurttemberg 25.

    In Hesse, there were 31 cases of sexual assault, sexual insults, thefts and attempted thefts. The report said that Hamburg and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia had the highest number of offenses with 195 complaints filed in Hamburg alone.

    A total of 1,076 crimes were reported in North Rhine-Westphalia, mainly in Cologne, Dusseldorf and Bielefeld including 692 cases of bodily harm and thefts and 384 sexual assaults.

    Forty-three such incidents were reported in Lower Saxony, Brandenburg, Saxony, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland.

    The attackers were reported as being men of Moroccan, Algerian or Tunisian descent aged between 17 and 30.

    A team of “super recognizers" from Scotland Yard so named for their unique ability to pick out faces in a crowd, have been asked by Cologne police to analyze video footage of the New Year’s Eve attacks, DW reported.

    Meanwhile, the number of victims involved in the New Year's Eve attacks in Cologne has increased to 1,049 people, Interior Minister of North-Rhine Westphalia Ralf Jaeger said in a report published Thursday.

    Dozens of women were robbed, sexually assaulted, and raped on New Year's Eve in Cologne by groups of aggressive men, mostly of Arab and North African appearance.

    The report also revealed that not only women had been attacked on New Year's Eve in Cologne. Eighteen percent of victims were male.

    The mass attacks in Cologne have casted doubt on Germany's open-door migration policy.

      These people are not part of the system yet. How are the Germans or EU going to control them is beyond me. No permanent residency or any residency, no proper ID, no job, they are on the go, etc. They started with sexual assaults watch what happens next.

      I'll tell you this much. I know a guy who used to live in the Balkans in the early 80's. He told me that back then jeans (pants and jackets) were so popular but they did not have them. So, they used to cross the border and went to Trieste and some Austrian cities. They could not believe their eyes when they got there that the shops were not only open and stocked with jeans but displayed on the stands outside of the shops. So, they used their arms like forklifts to lift more than a pair and regularly knocked it off and then sold across the border.

      Now, these guys were at least Europeans, imagine what's coming to you with 1.2 million of them already spread across Europe. No jobs, different culture, these eyes are so wide open and won't be just assaulting women....
    • Well multi-attacks across germany..i guess it was planned and therefore we should kick the "employers" and "employees" aka thugs disguised as "refugees".

      The numbers are confusing though: several dozen women were raped and/or got things stolen from, but 1049 reports were filed by one's "involved". Did the distant cousins of the victims also sue?

      Mother Gorilla, Maybe some sue for rape and some others for sexual harassments?

      Mother Gorilla,
      Hi,
      We are all sad to hear of the latest rape of a 13 year old Russian girl in Berlin.
      She was then tormented by a cop who made her out to be a liar (sickening!)
      and almost verbally raping her!.
      This is how evil P.C is if she said those (......".swear word"-Arabs etc) she would be accused of being racsist to her rapist?, and breaking the law?.
      You can easily double the figures of rapes or triple them. These crimes do not get on the books, and are mostly not reported because of honour, or fear of their relatives.
      Also from the black people here in Germany we thank the Russians who came down to Marzhan to support this Russian family in their sadness and shock .

      Jet fuel can't melt steel beams, still the discrepancy is huge. You observe petty instances of harassment every day, especially black women get harassed a lot, and the perps never get reported. I agree with you that these gangsters - they are not religious and least of all good Africans -- should be punished. But on the other hand it is clear that instances like that are exploited by the right wing and the racists and some women may have been persuaded to come forward! I frankly wish I could hear their true stories !
