No Charges Over Germany Xenophobic Car Attack, Suspect Remains in Detention
The attacks began shortly after midnight on Jan.1, first in Bottrop in western Germany and later in Essen. The 50-year-old suspect, who comes from Essen, is believed to have no previous police record.
The victims included a 46-year-old Syrian woman who suffered life-threatening injuries.
Police said Wednesday that a judge on Tuesday night ordered the suspect held in detention while the investigation on suspicion of attempted homicide continues.
Police say the suspect made anti-foreigner comments during his arrest and there were indications he had been treated for mental illness in the past.
