One of the girls allegedly attacked by a man in Illerkirchberg near Ulm has succumbed to his serious injuries. A spokesman for the police headquarters in Ulm confirmed a corresponding report by the "Südwestpresse" to the star on Monday afternoon.
According to current information, the 14-year-old and a schoolmate were attacked and seriously injured by a man on the way to school in the morning on the open road. Both came to the hospital. An eyewitness reported to Südwestrundfunk (SWR) that the two girls were stabbed. Police did not provide any information about a possible murder weapon. Shortly after the crime, the police arrested a suspect and two other men in an apartment building near the crime scene (read more here). A special task force was also deployed. Those arrested should be questioned. The police said nothing about the identity of the men.
It was also initially unclear what exactly happened around 7.30 a.m. in the community south of Ulm with its almost 5000 inhabitants. The police kept a low profile even hours after the crime. "We don't have any further information yet," the spokesman said. He announced a message for the course of Monday.
The attack caused horror in Illerkirchberg. The community is in shock, according to Mayor Markus Häußler, according to SWR. The affected families will be supported.
The place in the Alb-Donau district was the scene of a serious crime a few years ago. In 2019, a 14-year-old girl was raped several times in a refugee camp, and four men were sentenced to prison terms of two years and three months and two years and two months by the Ulm district court in March 2021, as the "Stuttgarter Zeitung" reported at the time.
