German Police: Man Intentionally Drove Into Crowd, Injured 4
BERLIN (AP) — A man has been arrested in Germany after ploughing his car into a crowd of people early Tuesday, injuring at least four in what appears to have been an intentional attack directed at foreigners, police said Tuesday.
The 50-year-old driver of a silver Mercedes first attempted to hit a group of people in the western city of Bottrop shortly after midnight, but the pedestrians were able to jump out of the way, Muenster police said.
The man, who wasn’t named, then drove into the center of Bottrop where he slammed into a crowd. Police said those hit by the car included Syrian and Afghan citizens, and some were seriously injured.
