A group of six adults brutally assaulted a 17-year-old girl on a Berlin tram for the ‘crime’ of not wearing a face mask.

According to accounts, the youngster was battered so violently that she had to be transported to the hospital.

The heinous and cowardly incident occurred on Saturday evening after the girl refused to wear a mask on a tram in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood.

According to Germany’s current covid regulations, passengers must “wear a medical or FFP [filtering face piece] mask” on “public transportation.”

Brietbart reports:

The unidentified girl who was travelling with her friends was initially racially abused when she refused to wear a mask after being told it was a legal requirement by the other passengers, reports claim.

Die Welt notes that once the girl left the train a group of three men and three women attacked her, punching and kicking her multiple times, and she even had some of her hair torn out. The 17-year-old female victim went to hospital because of her injuries.

The attackers initially managed to leave the scene. Later, one of the three male attackers was identified by police officers from a recording the victim made of the incident.

All three of the male attackers, aged between 42 and 51, were found by the police in a local pub later on Saturday evening, and some were said to be intoxicated and at least one was in possession of illegal drugs. The three women remain at large.

Germany’s current coronavirus restrictions mandate that travellers must “must wear a medical or FFP [filtering face piece] mask” on “public transport”, as well as having a Covid pass – that means to be either “recovered from COVID” a “fully vaccinated persons” or have a negative coronavirus test result.
