Farouk B., a 26-year-old, and ten others—of whom only three have been identified—sexually groped a white German woman and stole her cell phone on the evening of December 31, 2015, in Cologne city center.
Earlier, another Muslim “asylum seeker” was prosecuted for theft, but Farouk B.’s case marks the first sex-related charge to come before the courts following the mass sex attacks in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.
According to the indictment, handed in to a court this week, the “asylum seeker”—who has three aliases—and his accomplices surrounded a woman at about 1:30 am at the main Cologne railway station.
They grabbed their victim by all parts of her body, the indictment says, and she only prevented her clothes being ripped off by blocking the more violent attempts with her purse. Farouk B. then grabbed her cell phone, while his brother, Adberahemane B., grabbed another woman’s iPhone.
When the phones’ GPS data was tracked in January, it led police to a refugee center in Kerpen, just to the west of Cologne. There, the Muslim men were arrested in possession of the phones, and have been in custody ever since. It also emerged that Farouk B. and his brother had been arrested just two weeks before New Year’s Eve for attempting to break into a parked vehicle with an iron bar.
