Two transgender women have allegedly been ‘stoned in the street’ by migrants in Germany.
The two victims, only identified as Yasmine, 50, and Elisa, 37, described how three North African teens grabbed their hair and breasts last Monday (11 January) near the main train station in Dortmund.
‘Within seconds they were pushing us around. It was only then that I realized what they were saying: “You sluts need to be stoned!”‘ Elisa told Sat1 TV on Saturday evening.
‘And that’s what they did. They grabbed gravel from the ground and threw it at us.
‘Before that they tried to hit on us. For them, that’s OK. But when they realized we were transgender, they felt their honor was hurt. That’s why they snapped.’
According to the police report, the women were followed by three men aged between 16 and 18 for some time before the trio began insulting them in Arabic, saying ‘such people’ (trans people) should be stoned to death.
The report also states Yasmine answered to the insults in Arabic, which led to the men grabbing pebbles from a nearby (flower) plot and throwing them at the women.
The group also personally attacked one of the women, touching her breasts and pulling her hair; they only let go of their victims when they noticed police..
A passing police patrol intervened and arrested the men, two of which were described as ‘well-known multiple offenders’ by police; while the 18-year-old remains in custody, the other two men were released.
Police confirmed the suspects told them that ‘such persons must be stoned’.
‘That was barbaric what they did. They are barbarians,’ said Yasmine, adding this was the first time she felt unsafe in 30 years.
‘In 2016, in Germany, with stoning!’
