A railway employee decided to call in police on this occasion as after attempting to check the migrant’s ticket, the man began to act “strangely”, reports Focus.de.
Events took a turn for the violent as police arrived, and the man immediately flew into a fury. Attacking a female police officer, the man kicked and bit while screaming in Arabic the Islamist war-cry “Allah hu Akbar” and crying out the name of the Islamic State.
In the end it took three federal police officers to pepper spray and cuff the man. The female police officer was left with a “massive” knee injury and another officer was treated at hospital for a broken rib and bites on his forearm. Both are now off duty to recover from their wounds.
Despite being kept in hand-cuffs, the man even tried to “repeatedly” grab the service pistol of a police officer, reports NOZ.de. Once at the Osnabrück police station the man continued to give trouble by spitting at officers. …
It has been supposed the man reacted violently because he didn’t understand it was his ticket being checked, and he feared the police were going to deport him. …
Despite the violent assault on two police officers, the migrant attacker is now considering whether to launch a legal case against the police for his treatment.
It is now common practice in Europe to allow migrants without railway tickets to travel for free to avoid confrontation.
