They are said to have kicked the 55-year-old in the head and upper body on Sunday night in the Moabit district and then stole his bag. Around 11:40 p.m., police officers found the injured man, who was bleeding profusely from his face, near a station exit on Friedrich-List-Ufer. He came to the hospital.

Together with federal police officers, the officials looked at video surveillance images at the station. As a result, they were able to determine, according to the information, that two men attacked the victim at around 11:25 p.m., left the man lying motionless on the ground and drove away with his bag onto an S 3 S-Bahn line in the direction of Erkner. Further recordings showed that the men left the train at Ostbahnhof.
