Dhe 25-year-old man who was crushed on the sidelines of a Christopher Street Day meeting in Munster is dead. He succumbed to his injuries early Friday morning, police and prosecutors said. He intervened when an unknown man insulted participants and was knocked to the ground by him.
According to witnesses, the suspect is said to have insulted several women with “lesbian whore” or “piss off” on August 27 and approached them threateningly. According to the police, the 25-year-old noticed the situation and asked the troublemaker to refrain from insults. “The young man’s efforts to mediate are said to have been the trigger for the attack,” police and prosecutors said on Friday.
According to earlier investigators, the 25-year-old lost his balance before another punch hit him in the face. Then the 25-year-old lost consciousness and hit his head on the asphalt. After the attack he was taken to the hospital, after all he was in an artificial coma.
The suspect, described as an 18 to 20-year-old man, fled on foot with a companion. According to witnesses, the slight man wore flared jeans, a T-shirt and a bucket hat. The police are looking for him and are looking for other witnesses.
The 25-year-old man belonged to the Trans*Inter*-Münster association. Its members have placed a flag and colorful memorial stones at the scene of the crime. “The hostilities are increasing again,” said Felix Adrian Schäper, the club’s board member, on Tuesday. This is also due to the fact that more queer people now dare to go out and show themselves.
