German police have detained the main suspect in the violent attack on a woman in Berlin’s subway, which grabbed media headlines after shocking CCTV footage of it surfaced in December. The man and his three accomplices are said to hail from Bulgaria.
The 27-year old suspect, who was not officially named, was detained at a Berlin bus station in the district of Charlottenburg on Saturday afternoon, police reported in a statement. The law enforcement apprehended the man upon his arrival to Berlin when he was still inside a bus.
German tabloid Bild reported that one of the passengers on the bus recognized the man and tipped off the police. The bus was reportedly heading to Berlin from southern France, the outlet said citing prosecutor’s office. Dozens of police officers took part in the raid to catch the assailant, who did not resist arrest.
