The ten-year-old was hired with a friend at the waterslide, the suspect stood in front of her. He let the two children go before, but the ten-year-old then reached several places on the head and on the buttocks. The girl was frightened, slipped down with his girlfriend, then the two of them informed her parents.
The mother of the girl described the incident:”My daughter, her friend and the girlfriend’s family left the bathroom, so I did not know about the incident and waited for my daughter at the parking lot … (Exactly when I came, the man went out of the bath and My daughter recognized him,”
The asylum seeker was taken into custody by police. But so far, police have been unable to interrogate him as he does not speak any German and no interpreter was available on the weekend.
