Leipzig was last Thursday shaken by an unusual brutal rape in the middle of the East German city. It was in the popular park Rosental that a man in full daylight attacked a woman in her fifties, then raped her and in other ways abused her so brutally that she afterwards had to be admitted for emergency surgery in the hospital, German Stern reports.
The police report clarifies that the victim, who was jogging, was thrown to the ground and repeatedly kicked in the face, then dragged away to a nearby field where the rape was carried out.
The offender then fled the scene, and is still at large. Police say they are without a trace and has asked the public for help. With what, after the New Year's Eve in Cologne, has become an euphemism for people from North Africa or the Middle East, a description that reads "southern" looking, with dark hair and a dark beard.
The police now warn against jogging alone.
In a conversation with Stern, police spokesman Uwe Voigt says: "Whoever is jogging alone, should be wary of the surroundings, and moreover, cast a glance behind. If you have the opportunity, you should jog together with someone."
And so another one of the freedoms that one took for granted disappears.
Freedom of expression, freedom of assembly, freedom of movement, freedom of religion, freedom to jog alone. The Europe we knew does not exist anymore.
