Georgians detained in Dresden for breach of peace

Georgians detained in Dresden for breach of peace

Two police officers and a security guard were injured when around 50 refugees attacked police after they attempted to stop a fight at a migrant reception center in Dresden, authorities said.

Police were called after security guards struggled to contain a dispute about food between two migrants from Georgia on Friday evening. "As a result, about 50 residents gathered and attacked officers by throwing lit cigarettes, then kicking and beating them," a statement from Dresden police said.

"One attacker tried to attack the officers with an iron bar from his bed," Deutsche Welle cited the statement as saying.

Four suspects — all of them Georgian nationals — were detained on Friday for breach of the peace.  Police said one of them was due to be deported following the arrest, while three others were taken to prison.
