A 23-year-old man of Afghan origin has been sentenced to three years in prison after assaulting a 27-year-old Ugandan man and threatening him with a knife in a hotel used as an asylum centre in Bavaria.
According to BR24, the men were involved in a fight when the Ugandan migrant fled the scene and locked his door. The Afghan man pursued him, however, and broke his door down while wielding a knife. Another resident at the centre had to help subdue him before taking the knife.
The defendant was cleared of attempted murder, although the state prosecutor may appeal the decision.
