Emmendingen (dpa / lsw) - Two people in carnival costumes were attacked in Emmendingen by a group with burning torches. The two victims were disguised as fools, which a group walking past apparently did not like, the police said on Saturday.
First of all, there were massive insults against the two "fools" by the three men. The group expressed their disregard for the carnival festival. The trio pursued the victims, eventually throwing flaming torches at them. Why they walked around with burning torches is the subject of the investigation, according to the information.
According to the information, the two carnivalists fled into a house entrance. They weren't hurt. The perpetrators have not yet been caught, which is why the police are looking for witnesses to the incident on Thursday evening.
