Two seriously injured women and an apartment fire: In northern Germany, a 56-year-old police officer is said to be responsible for these acts. The motive is still unclear.
A police officer is said to have mistreated two women in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and started a fire in their apartment. The 56-year-old from the Rostock district was arrested on Tuesday night at his place of residence, as the Neubrandenburg public prosecutor announced.
The man is accused of attempted manslaughter. The women were seriously injured and taken to a clinic. The public prosecutor’s office wanted to decide on an arrest warrant on Tuesday after an interrogation. No information has yet been given on the motif.
The fire broke out on Monday afternoon in the women’s apartment in an apartment building in Neubrandenburg. The fire brigade was able to quickly extinguish the fire in the hallway of the apartment. The 69-year-old tenant and her 33-year-old roommate were found with severe injuries caused by blunt violence, it was said to be.
Neighbors had already taken a toddler out of the apartment and alerted rescuers. The two women came to clinics – as did the eleven-month-old toddler who was the 33-year-old’s daughter.
According to the public prosecutor, the injuries were similar. The investigation led to the trail of the 56-year-old, who is said to have known the women, as it was said. He let himself be arrested at his place of residence without resistance. Further details were not disclosed for the time being.
