An alleged racist attack by a group of young people on two Ghanaian girls in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania has caused horror.

An eight-year-old girl and her father were slightly injured in the incident in Grevesmühlen. State Interior Minister Christian Pegel (SPD) condemned Friday evening’s act in the strongest possible terms. “You don’t attack people, especially not children, and certainly not for racist reasons,” said Pegel.

According to initial police findings, the eight-year-old Ghanaian girl and her two-year-older sister were attacked by a group of around 20 teenagers and adolescents on Friday at around 7:30 p.m. The attackers are said to have kicked the younger girl in the face, among other things. When the children’s parents arrived, an argument broke out. When the police arrived on the scene, one person from the group is said to have insulted the victims with xenophobic remarks as they left.

Up to eight people from the group took part in the attack, the police reported. The girl and her father were taken to hospital in an ambulance. The police are now investigating charges of breach of the peace, grievous bodily harm, incitement and insult. Officers are looking for witnesses to the incident.
