Video taken from WOLFSNACHT. - Because of disturbance of the peace and because the residents demolished the facility in a shelter for asylum seekers in Stephansposching (district Deggendorf), police moved out on Friday evening (31 May 2019). The officers were massively harassed, insulted and physically attacked at the accommodation. Several policemen were injured.
Around 5 p.m., officers of the police station Plattling were called into the asylum seeker accommodation in Stephansposching. Several residents had damaged and rioted the facility there. According to police, four patrols were deployed, the situation seemed calm at first. Then the atmosphere heated up, about 30 residents insulted the police "in the worst way", harassed the policemen and attacked them.
The police finally managed to take the ringleader into custody. Then the situation escalated. Residents hit the police officers and threw bicycles at them. So they tried to free the ringleader. An asylum seeker spat in an officer's face. The police fought back with pepper spray.
When the ringleader was at the official vehicle, an asylum seeker jumped with both feet into the side window of the police car. The asylum seekers barricaded the exit with stones and cable drums. They blocked the gate with bicycle locks. The officers had to retreat over a construction fence.
Massive police forces were then requested, including officers of the adjacent police headquarters in Upper Palatinate. 15 persons were taken into custody. Six persons were arrested and handed over to the Deggendorf Criminal Investigation Department. On Saturday, the question of detention will be clarified in consultation with the Deggendorf public prosecutor's office.
The ringleader initially managed to escape. He was wanted by a police helicopter. Around 21 o'clock the man turned himself in to the policemen. Six Nigerians between 23 and 38 years of age are now under investigation, among other things for bodily injury, resistance against enforcement officers, suspicion of a serious breach of the peace and liberation of prisoners.
Several officers were injured during the operation. They suffered cuts, rib injuries and eye injuries. Four officers were taken to a clinic for outpatient treatment.
