Berlin (dpa / bb) – A 30-year-old is said to have rioted in a Berlin refugee accommodation and threatened security guards and later also police officers with a knife. With irritant gas and drawn service pistol, the officers were able to tame the man and took him into custody until Wednesday, the police said. Why the man had become aggressive remained open.
He is said to have damaged the lighting and furniture in the accommodation on Wittenberger Straße in Marzahn and threw objects such as an ashtray at security guards. He fled with the knife, but was found near by alerted emergency services.
