Oberhausen (dpa / lnw) - Seven weeks after the allegedly targeted attack on the party office of the left in Oberhausen with an explosion, the investigators have initiated a public search - and want to find a possibly important witness, not a suspect. The police and public prosecutor announced on Wednesday that a man could be seen on the video recording who could possibly provide relevant information due to the proximity in time and space. The approximately 45 to 55-year-old man who can be seen in a photo published by the investigators should report to the police.
On the night of July 7, an explosion destroyed the windows of the party office and neighboring shops, among other things. According to the police, the perpetrators, who are still unknown, had used a self-made explosive device. Based on its placement, it can be assumed that the attack was aimed at the party office. Representatives of the left suspect an attack by right-wing circles. For the investigators, the suspicion of a political motive has so far been neither confirmed nor refuted.
