Immigrant men have groped and sexually assaulted a number of women in a German city in copycat attacks of the New Year’s eve sex frenzy in Cologne.
Police said the four women who filed complaints after the incidents in Essen late on Friday could be ‘only the tip of the iceberg.’
Women who may have been attacked at the Essen Original city party have been offered a confidential hotline by officers to contact them.
The police presence at the festival was beefed up over the weekend as a result of the sexual assaults.
All said that men came up to them in groups, danced around them, harassed and groped them.
