Sexual assaults reported in Berlin despite ‘safety area’ for women

At least 13 cases of sexual assault were reported in Germany’s capital on New Year’s Eve — despite the city’s creation of a “safety area” for women to celebrate the arrival of 2018 near Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate.

Police made seven arrests, according to Fox News and multiple German media reports, but no information was released about the suspects.

A local police spokeswoman told Fox News that police were still gathering information about the night’s reported crimes, but did not disclose more information about the detained people
