Geneva (AFP) – A key suspect in the New Year’s Eve mass sexual assaults in Cologne was spotted shoplifting in southern Germany and arrested across the border in Switzerland, authorities said Thursday.
The 19-year-old Moroccan national was arrested Wednesday in the Swiss border town of Kreuzlingen, the Swiss justice ministry said.
German police in the city of Konstanz said they were awaiting his extradition.
The Cologne attacks, committed in a crowd of mostly North African men, shocked Germany and heightened public concern about an influx of migrants, many of them Syrians fleeing their country’s civil war.
Prosecutors received more than 1,100 criminal complaints, including over 480 accusations of sexual assault.
The attacks sparked widespread anger, with far-right groups railing against “sex jihadists” and “rapefugees”.
