Darmstadt (ots) –

On Monday evening (April 11), around 9:15 p.m., a young man, who was accompanied by three other young people, threatened a 15-year-old man who was traveling with a friend in the orangery and asked him to hand over around 70 euros asked. The four men then fled the scene on foot with the loot.

As part of an immediately initiated police search, the law enforcement officers then provisionally arrested four suspected young people between the ages of 14 and 16 in the Martinstraße area. An officer was injured during the arrest and had to stop working after receiving medical treatment.

The police initiated criminal proceedings on suspicion of extortion. Investigations into the exact background of the crime are ongoing.
