In central Cologne, Germany, five people were arrested after approximately 1,000 migrants celebrated New Year’s Eve by firing rockets into the crowds and raping local German women caught in the crossfire.
A local police officer told the BBC that he had detained eight suspects, all of whom were carrying papers identifying them as refugees. Police chief Wolfgang Albers described the entire crowd as being of “Arab or North African appearance, according to the report.
Large gangs of migrants moved around the center of town, and now dozens of men reported having been assaulted and robbed, while dozens more women have reported molestation and rape.
So far, 80 people claim to have been attacked, and 35 have reported sexual assault. It is likely that many more attacks occurred but have not yet been reported.
One woman, Katia L., 28, was making her way from the train station with her boyfriend and two other friends when they were attacked.
The group was comprised of “exclusively young foreign men.”
“We then walked through this group of men. There was an alley through (the men) which we walked through.” She was then assaulted.
“Suddenly I felt a hand on my buttocks, then on my breasts, in the end, I was groped everywhere,” she said. “It was a nightmare. Although we shouted and beat them, the guys did not stop. I was desperate and think I was touched around 100 times in the 200 meters (walked).”
“Fortunately I wore a jacket and trousers,” she said. “A skirt would probably have been torn away from me.”
She was assaulted by so many attackers that Katia said that she could not identify any one attacker.

Police have said that she may have gotten off lucky in comparison to others victimized that night. One woman had her tights and underwear torn off in the middle of the crowd.
“This is a completely new dimension of violence,” the police union spoke about the incidents. “This is something we have not known.”
The migrants also fired fireworks into the crowd, as well as the police.
