Young women sexually harassed, robbed at Berlin street festival

Police have detained three suspects after two teens were groped and robbed by a group of young men during Berlin’s “Karneval der Kulturen” festival. The assault was reminiscent of the New Year’s Eve attacks in Cologne.

Police in Berlin tweeted that the three suspects were known to the police for prior incidents, adding that “two are of Turkish descent.” The third suspect’s origin is unknown.
