Around 20 young people apparently partied for hours in the forest near Neunkirchen-Seelscheid on Monday. The police issued expulsions and filed charges for violations of the Corona Protection Ordinance, as the district police announced on Tuesday.

According to the statement, the police first went to the street "Im Immenthal" shortly before midnight because several cars were allegedly damaged by youths. The wing mirrors of three vehicles were smashed off and the rear window of another car was smashed with an unknown object. During the investigation, the police received tips about a group of about 20 people who had apparently been partying in the neighbouring woods since the afternoon.
