German authorities arrested seven refugees Tuesday morning in connection to an assault committed against a homeless man in a Berlin subway station.
According to the Daily Mail, the refugees — six from Syria and one from Libya — were arrested after a CCTV camera in the Schonleinstrabe station filmed the Christmas eve attack.
The suspects’ ages range from 15 to 21, and Berlin Police spokesman Thomas Neuendorf stated the 21 year old is being treated as the primary suspect.
The six other suspects reportedly cheered and celebrated their companion’s actions before all seven escaped via train.Though the victim managed to escape without life-threatening injuries, Neuendorf reported the case is being investigated as an attempted murder.
The savage attack comes less than a week after Anis Amri — a known ISIS sympathizer — drove a truck into a Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 people and injuring countless others. (RELATED: Berlin Attacker Had Contact With ISIS, Was Under Surveillance Prior To Killing 12)
ISIS would go on to take credit for Amri’s attack and deem him a “soldier of Islam.”
