via Daily Mail: Shocking footage has surfaced online appearing to show a group of young migrants attacking two German pensioners after they stood up for a young women the men were harassing on a subway train.
Recorded on a mobile phone, the disgraceful video shows the men – of Eastern European or Arabic origin – holding one man by the arms as they verbally abuse him.
The second victim is seen grappling with one of the migrants, before he is held up by the neck and threatened.
Munich man Tom Roth uploaded the disgraceful video to his Facebook page. He caught the footage while travelling from Sendlinger Tor station to the Metro’s city centre terminal.
e said the fight broke out after one of the asylum seekers was rejected by a woman who he had placed his hand upon on the train.
In response, the man smashed his hand against the carriage’s glass window – an aggressive act of defiance the train’s other passengers requested he desist.
However, when they did, one elderly German man was patted mockingly on the head by one of the migrant group.
That act of disrespect sparked an angry exchange.
Translated, the post accompanying Mr Roth’s video upload reads: ‘A young woman was attacked on the subway. When two old men tried to intervene, they too were attacked.
‘This was in the heart of Munich, in the middle of the day. I got on the train at Sendlinger Tor travelling to the main railway station. I sat in a four-seater, across from a young lady.
‘In the four-way behind her sat two asylum seekers. One of them, a young man, probably of Arab origin, bothered the woman.
‘He said something to her and asked: “Why will you not answer me on German?”
‘She responded: “Because you asked me in English”. I think he had his hand on her back. She turned away and looked in my direction.
‘As the train continued, the asylum seeker struck the glass window full force. I guess he was angry the woman rejected him. Several gentlemen shouted at him to stop.
‘One of these men, in the four seats beside me, was then touched on the head by one of the asylum seekers wearing a brown jacket. He stroked his bald head, to mock him. It was such disrespectful behaviour, the likes of which I have rarely seen before.
‘The gentleman stood up right away. The asylum seeker then turned, approached the man and grabbed him by the neck. Everyone immediately became involved, with many trying to get in between the pair.

‘The man’s attacker fell back in his four-seater. There were four asylum seekers now involved, staring at us and two other older gentlemen angrily.
‘There were about 10-15 people beside and behind me. The situation was brought under control. When the train reached the station I called the police. They said there was nothing they could do.’
The incident is the latest violent coming together of asylum seekers and Germans to have come to light in recent weeks.
It follows New Year riots in Cologne triggered by a number of sexual assaults made against local women by a group of up to a 1,000 men ‘of Arab and North African origin’.
