A group of asylum seekers sexually assaulted numerous women at a free concert in Germany at the weekend in attacks similar to those carried out in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.
Three Pakistani men are already under arrest after 18 women filed complaints that they had been improperly touched, fondled and groped during the festival in the city of Darmstadt.
Police have said the number of complainants could rise.
Between two and three more men are still being sought by police as victims receive counselling and authorities try to cool down rising tensions against migrants in general.
The incident had similarities to the attacks in Cologne on December 31 – when a number of young women were targeted in the concourse of the city’s main railway station.
