Darmstadt-Eberstadt (ots) –
Late on Monday evening (July 25), an attempted robbery occurred on Seeheimer Strasse, in which a 48-year-old woman was injured. In this context, the police hope for whistleblowers.
The 48-year-old was walking when she was suddenly attacked by a previously unknown man around 11 p.m. According to current knowledge, he tried to cut through the shoulder strap of her handbag with a knife. As a result, the passerby suffered lacerations on her arm. By screaming loudly and holding her bag, the stranger gave up his criminal plan and fled on the Palissadenstraße in the direction of the forest. An immediately initiated search with several strips was unsuccessful. The 48-year-old was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.
