Yesterday, we reported that a haji hatchetman delivered a vibrant street performance at a Christmas market in Witzenhausen.
However, another Christmas market enjoyed some festive entertainment over the weekend, too – and this time, the Germans fought back.
Two German towns have seen arrests at their Christmas markets as migrants brawled with locals in one case and in another, a migrant threatened passers-by with an axe while yelling “Allah hu Akbar.”
The first incident occurred at a Christmas market in the town of Ludwigslust, in the region of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern on Saturday at around 10:40 pm, and saw a dispute between a group of native Germans and migrants escalate into violence, according to a press release from police.
Officers attempted to calm the situation, but were forced to deploy irritant spray to bring order back to the market. One 41-year-old was injured along with a 21-year-old but neither required immediate medical care on site. Police say they have filed two separate charges of assault and are looking for witnesses to the incident.
