Rotkreuz: Man beaten and pushed onto the railroad track
Four men beat up a young man in the Rotkreuz train station and pushed him onto the railroad track. One of the four perpetrators was identified and arrested a short time later. The victim had to be taken to the hospital for control. Otherwise, the Christmas days were rather calm.
The incident occurred on the night of Friday (December 25, 2020) at 01:00 a.m. on a platform in Rotkreuz station. When a 20-year-old man saw a young woman he knew was verbally molested by two men, he intervened and asked the two men to leave the 20-year-old alone. The two men and two others then attacked the man and hit him with fists and kicks.
The victim finally managed to get up from the floor and move away. Thereupon he was pursued by one of the men and pushed with full force onto a railroad track, where he stayed for a short time. Back on the platform he was attacked and beaten again by the group.
An uninvolved passer-by witnessed the crime and took courageous steps. The four suspects then moved away in different directions.
The young man who was attacked had to be admitted to the hospital for a check-up with a tear and several bruises. He could leave this again that night.
The investigation, which was initiated immediately, quickly led the forces of the Zug police on the trail of the attackers. One of them, a 19-year-old Swiss, was temporarily arrested at his place of residence just hours after the crime.
The investigation into the three other men involved in the crime is ongoing. The investigation is conducted by the public prosecutor of the canton of Zug.
Otherwise, the Christmas days went rather calmly and without any extraordinary efforts. Between December 24 and 26, 2020, a total of seven traffic accidents occurred on the streets of the canton of Zug. Fortunately, no one was injured and sheet metal damage remained everywhere. Reports of disturbances of the peace were only received sporadically at the operations control center of the Zug police.
On St. Stephen’s Day (December 26, 2020), the Zug police were asked for support by SBB staff because a passenger refused to wear the protective mask correctly and to leave the train on the train from Zurich to Lucerne. The 69-year-old man initially resisted the instructions of the emergency services, but was subsequently escorted from the train at Zug station. He is reported and has to answer to the responsible public prosecutor.
