It was not until Tuesday night that the police followed a group of teenagers who allegedly beat and robbed a 16-year-old boy in the palm garden. Noticeable: In this case too, the victim’s shoes were stolen from their feet! However, the perpetrators managed to go into hiding in a party of around 100 young people between Sachsenbrücke and Jahnallee.

“We have seen an increase in robbery offenses in the area,” a police spokesman confirmed to BILD. Previously, there had been repeated attacks on the nearby Sachsenbrücke in Clara-Zetkin-Park. Since the police and the public order office have appeared there more often, it has become quiet.

Apparently, however, crime has only shifted. They said they wanted to send strips to the palm garden more often.
