Kassel Mitte and Fasanenhof: On Saturday night two robberies took place in Kassel, the criminal police are now looking for witnesses. On the one hand, strangers broke into a grocery store on Kurt-Schumacher-Strasse and stole money and some things. On the other hand, thieves broke into a day-care center on Haarmannweg, but they raised the alarm and probably escaped without taking anything. It is currently unclear if both robberies were caused by the same thief. Investigations are ongoing.
The robbery took place at Kurt Schumacher’s grocery store, near Altmarkt Junction, at approximately 2:20 am. Based on surveillance camera recordings, it can be said that at least two unidentified perpetrators broke into the store through the front door and then stole the locker with cash, some groceries, and a blanket. With the robbery, the perpetrators escaped from the store through the front door and continued in an unknown direction.
Thieves can be described as follows:
1.) Male, normal to slim build, light-colored padded waistcoat, dark jacket with hood under waistcoat, hat under hood, sweatpants, sneakers
2.) Male, of normal to slim stature, dark jacket with hood, dark trousers, sneakers, black shoulder bag
The foster home robbery occurred around 4:30 am. In this case, there is no description of the perpetrator yet. Strangers entered the building through a window, which they opened with a tool. However, they sounded the burglar alarm and then fled without taking anything. The damage caused by the broken window is estimated at more than 1,000 euros.
Officers of Commission 21/22 of the Kassel Criminal Police Office are conducting further investigations into the two robberies. Witnesses who can give information about the perpetrators, please contact the police in Kassel on Tel. 0561-9100.
