A police officer from Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is said to have mistreated two women and even set one of them on fire. The officer was arrested. The district court of Neubrandenburg issued an arrest warrant against him for attempted murder and grievous bodily harm.
A police officer allegedly mistreated a 69-year-old and her 33-year-old daughter during the dispute and then set the younger woman on fire. As a spokesman for the Neubrandenburg public prosecutor announced on Tuesday, the 56-year-old officer was arrested on Tuesday night near Rostock. He did not offer any resistance. The district court of Neubrandenburg issued an arrest warrant for attempted murder and grievous bodily harm against the man in the afternoon. According to the district court, the accused did not comment on the allegations before the judge.
It should be “in the broadest sense an act of relationship”, as the public prosecutor’s spokesman told the German press agency (AP) said. According to previous investigations, the man drove to the apartment in Neubrandenburg Oststadt on Monday, where the 69-year-old mother of the acquaintance lives. There was a loud and violent argument, as a result of which the 56-year-old is said to have mistreated both women. After several beatings, he set his 33-year-old friend on fire and fled.
Neighbors heard the noise, took the eleven-month-old 33-year-old toddler out of the apartment and alerted the ambulance. The fire brigade was able to quickly extinguish the fire in the hallway of the apartment, it said. The 69-year-old tenant and the toddler were injured in a clinic in Neubrandenburg. The seriously injured 33-year-old woman was taken to a special fire clinic in Berlin. But you shouldn’t be in mortal danger.
Injuries caused by blunt violence were also found in both women, it said. The investigation finally led the police to track down the 56-year-old. According to the prosecutor’s office, the application for arrest is attempted murder because it was a matter of “base motives” and a “cruel manner of killing.”
Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania’s Interior Minister Torsten Renz (CDU) was stunned by the incident that affected a police officer. “I wish the injured women a quick recovery,” said Renz on Tuesday. Now it is important to fully investigate the crime and – if the suspicion is confirmed – to initiate all necessary legal steps. On the part of the Rostock police headquarters, disciplinary measures were initiated and the man’s official business was forbidden with immediate effect.
