Burglars help residents back into their homes

Erfurt, Thuringia: In Erfurt, two suspected burglars opened the door of the resident of the apartment they broke into after he locked himself out during the chase. According to the police, the 21 and 26-year-old men broke into an apartment building on Saturday evening. They knocked and rang a doorbell to make sure the apartment was empty.

They then opened the door with tools. Contrary to expectations, the scantily clad resident appeared in front of the men, who then fled. The 39-year-old resident took up the chase and caught the intruders in the house. Unfortunately, the door slammed behind him – the key was still in the apartment. So he asked the young men to open his door again – which they did before the police expected them in front of the apartment.

Motorist drives onto sidewalk and injures four children

Wuppertal, North Rhine-Westphalia: A 23-year-old drove a car into four girls on a sidewalk, injuring them. The man lost control of his sports car on Sunday afternoon in the Heckinghausen district of Wuppertal and drove into the three twelve-year-olds and the three-year-old girl, the police said. The children’s injuries had to be treated in the hospital, but the girls were not in mortal danger.

The driver crashed his car into a house wall. “After an argument with angry relatives of the children,” the 23-year-old suffered minor injuries. Because he may have been on drugs, he had to hand in a blood sample and his driver’s license.

Heilgeisthof, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania: After an accident in which five people were seriously injured in Heilgeisthof (West Pomerania-Greifswald), the police are investigating the alleged cause of the accident for driving without a license and negligent bodily harm. The 39-year-old is said to have got into the opposite lane with his van on Sunday on federal highway 109, where he collided head-on with a car in oncoming traffic, a police spokesman said on Monday. A family with two daughters aged 7 and 15 was in the other accident car. All four inmates from the Vorpommern-Greifswald district came to a clinic in Greifswald with serious injuries.

According to the police, the investigation revealed that the van driver, who was also seriously injured, did not have a valid driver’s license for the van. An expert from Dekra should now find out why the 39-year-old suddenly drifted into the oncoming lane in the direction of Greifswald with the van. A rescue helicopter, four ambulance teams and several fire brigades were deployed.
