German law enforcement is investigating reports of large groups of men groping and robbing women in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.
Witnesses said hundreds of young men, described as "North African or Arabic," descended onto the festivities, throwing firecrackers at the crowd before breaking off into smaller groups that surrounded and attacked women in the town square.
One witness told German outlet WDR: "People were robbed and German girls were groped. I was surrounded by a group of 50 to 60 people from Arabic countries. They would come up to us, shake hands and then try to reach into our bags."
