Status: 07.03.2021 01:06 p.m.

After the death of a 19-year-old from Delmenhorst, the Oldenburg public prosecutor ordered the autopsy of the body. The young man had collapsed in police custody.

The autopsy should clarify the exact cause of death, said a police spokesman on Sunday. No further information could be disclosed until the result is available. For reasons of neutrality, the Oldenburg-Stadt / Ammerland police station has taken over the investigation.

Scuffle when arrested in the wool park

The young man reportedly died on Saturday evening in an Oldenburg hospital. Civilian officers from the Delmenhorst police caught him consuming narcotics in the Delmenhorster wool park early on Friday evening. The 19-year-old tried to flee, but was caught a few meters. This resulted in a scuffle in which the suspect hit a police officer twice in the head. The policeman then used pepper spray. The two of them finally succeeded in overpowering the man. Because they had used pepper spray, they routinely alerted the emergency services. According to the information, however, the 19-year-old refused treatment.

Collapsed in detention cell

The officers then took him to the office. A standby judge ordered a blood sample to be taken. The police held the 19-year-old in a detention cell until the doctor arrived. There they then watched via video surveillance as he suddenly collapsed in the cell. According to the information, the officials alerted an emergency doctor and initiated rescue measures themselves until he arrived. By the time the young man was taken to the hospital, his condition was already critical.

Further information

The man had previously been arrested in the wool park for possible drug use. His condition is said to be critical. (06.03.2021) more
