  • Alleged lead criminal identified – 13 years old
  • Because of his age, the boy is not guilty
  • Investigations for the public prosecutor’s office not yet completed

After the attack on a trans woman in a Bremen tram, the investigators identified the alleged main perpetrator. The public prosecutor confirmed buten un binnen that it is a 13-year-old. He is accused of repeatedly hitting the woman in the face with his fists.

Because of his age, he is not criminally responsible. The youth welfare office is therefore responsible for further measures. For the public prosecutor, however, the investigations are not complete: they are looking for other accomplices who were involved in the attack in early September.
