Revealed: 1,200 women were sexually assaulted by 2,000 men in German cities on New Year’s Eve

  • Leaked report confirms the staggering number of sexual crimes in cities
  • Only 120 people have been identified out of the 2,000 potential perpetrators
  • On New Year’s Eve there were 600 attacks in Cologne and 400 in Hamburg 
  • Original figure of estimated sexual assaults back in January was just 359

A leaked report has revealed a staggering 1,200 were sexually abused in German cities during New Year’s Eve celebrations.

The police document stated detectives believe 2,000 men were involved across various cities but that the bulk of the crimes were committed in Cologne and Hamburg where 600 and 400 sexual assaults on women were reported respectively.

Of the 2,000 perpetrators, only 120 have been identified, and about half of them were foreign nationals who had only recently arrived in Germany.


The report was published by German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung, which revealed a huge upscale in the original estimate of 359 sexual assault victims back in January. By May, that figure had increased to ‘up to 1,000’, according to the authorities in Germany.

The horrendous scenes more than seven months ago have only resulted in four convictions, although more trials are underway.

One of the most recent were the trials of foreign nationals Hussain A and Hassan T, walked from court cheering and smiling having been gifted suspended sentences despite the judge calling them ‘animals’.

Algerian Hassan T was also found guilty of being an accomplice to a sexual assault carried out by a group of around 20 men.

The 26-year-old told a man who was walking with two female victims ‘Give me the girls, give me the girls – or you’re dead.’

Hussain A, a 21-year-old Iraqi, had kissed a young woman against her will and then licked her face.

‘We see that as sexual assault,’ said judge Gerd Krämer. ‘He forced the victim to accept the kiss and lick.’

Both were given a one-year suspended sentence and their victims openly wept in court.

Dozens of victims have bravely come forward to tell of their horror, including 17-year-old studnet Dilara Zajarskaite, who waived her anonymity to tell MailOnline: ‘We were attacked separate five times and no one stopped to help us. These Arab men touched me and hurt me. They tried to kidnap my best friend. It was terrifying.

‘I told a policeman what had happened to us that night but he said it was not worth making a complaint because I could not name any of the attackers.

‘It is a scandal the police have not captured any of the men who did this.’

Hers is one of 1,200 nightmare
