Crime by migrants in Germany went up by 79% last year, with offences including sex assaults and murder on the rise

Crimes committed by migrants in Germany increased by 79 per cent in 2015, according to figures released by the Federal Criminal Office.

Nearly one in five offences committed by migrants or refugees in Germany last year were violent crimes, such as assaults, robberies or ‘threatening behaviour’.

However, despite reports of sex mob attacks and public molestation cases involving asylum seekers across Germany, just one per cent of crimes committed by migrants were sex crimes.
