The newspaper does not give a description of the 18-year-old man who slashed the 21-year-old man’s face with a razor blade. The attacker appears part of a group of three. Given the violent crimes taking place in Cologne by groups of migrants, it would be a fair presumption that the attackers had a migrant background.

Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger:

After an attack with a razor blade on a 21-year-old man in Widdersdorf, the perpetrator was on Tuesday evening, the police asked.

The Cologne police had searched with a picture from the security camera of a KVB bus for the main suspect.

According to the police, the 18-year-old from Cologne, who is now under pressure, is in urgent suspicion of having given the 21-year-old a 15 centimeter long wound on his left cheek with a razor blade on 15 September.
