49 pupils, teenagers and teachers had to be treated for irritation with pepper spray on Monday after a fight at an upper secondary school in the Berlin district of Neukölln. The local police informed about it today. According to her, the brawl did not have a political motive, but was sparked by an unspecified banal cause. The headmistress of the school suffered a broken arm in the incident.
A banal dispute escalated so that the 52-year-old headmistress of the school, who wanted to separate the pupils, ended up in the hospital. However, most of the injuries that emergency services treated on an outpatient basis were caused by pepper spray. Other teachers were also attacked and the police were also called.
The fight started in the morning between two 14-year-old boys and one 15-year-old boy on one side and two other boys on the other side. The policemen who were called calmed the situation down a bit, but the 21-year-old brother of one of the pupils then attacked the law enforcement officers with his fists and insulted them. He is now being investigated for assaulting police officers, threatening, insulting and causing bodily harm.
