What is known about the men so far?
According to the prosecutor, the men are not related to each other or by marriage, they are a group, says BILD reporter Corinna Perrevoort, who is on site in Leer. “They all still live with their families. Therefore, they were not taken into custody under the condition that they report to the police several times and continue to live with their parents. You are not allowed to approach the woman. If that happens, the sentence will be carried out immediately. “
And further: “The three men are said to have come to Germany with their families in the first wave of refugees, that was around 2015.”
The suspects are said to all live in the settlement where the rape took place. In addition to Germans, people from many nations and many refugee families live there after they have moved out of the transition homes.
According to information from investigators, the group rape is said to have been a “spontaneous act” that the men had agreed to meet. The perpetrator and the victim are said to have known each other in advance.
