Homicide investigation in Bonn: Man stands on train tracks while bleeding heavily

Homicide investigation in Bonn : Man stands on train tracks while bleeding heavily

Last Wednesday, a man stood at Bonn main station with heavily bleeding wounds on his neck. It is unclear whether he was injured in a fight. A homicide squad is investigating and looking for witnesses.

According to the police on Monday afternoon, a train driver had reported to the Federal Police early in the morning of July 8 that a "bleeding person" was standing on track 3 of the main station in Bonn. The officers found the 33-year-old seriously injured man and alerted the emergency services.

The injured man, who was bleeding from several wounds on his neck, was taken to a clinic, underwent emergency surgery and received intensive medical treatment. His condition is currently stable according to the doctors treating him. At first, he had not been able to say anything about it or where his injuries came from. Since it could not be ruled out that he was injured by others, a homicide squad of the Bonn police under the direction of Chief Inspector Jürgen Hülder, in close coordination with Public Prosecutor Elisabeth Vogt, took over the investigation.

So far, investigators assume that the 33-year-old suffered the injuries between 3 and 4:30 a.m. during the night of Wednesday, July 8. A possible crime scene or witnesses to the event could not be determined so far, which is why the police are now asking the population for help.

The 33-year-old is described as being 1.85 to 1.90 metres tall with dark skin and black hair. He was wearing a black shirt and black Adidas pants and black Nike sneakers during the night. He speaks mainly English and Italian and broken German.

Anyone who has seen the man in the city centre of Bonn and in particular in the area around the main railway station in the night to Wednesday or can provide further relevant information is requested to contact the homicide squad on 0228/15-0.
