Both these stories are from today’s Danish MSM, and were translated by our Danish correspondent TB.
Denmark is notable among Western countries in that it still publishes descriptions of criminal suspects that identify their ethnic appearance. In stories like these, almost anywhere else in Europe the word “Arab” would have been left out. In Sweden the perpetrators’ height, weight, hair color, and apparent age would be included, but readers would be left to guess from subtle contextual hints that the criminals were immigrants practicing their cultural enrichment.

Mentally ill man shot in the face by group of youngsters
A 65-year-old mentally ill man was surrounded by a group of 7 or 8 youngsters while he was on his way from his residency on a nursing home to the Q8 gas station in Hundige Main Street.
One of the youngsters pointed a soft gun directly against the head of the aging man and shot him at least 12 times in the face with hard plastic bullets.
“He has been taken to the hospital for treatment for the gun wounds and we are now using every resource we have to find the group of youngsters, who are of an ethnic origin other than Danish — possibly Arab,” spokesman Jan Lauritzen from the police states.
The badly upset and mentally ill man was not robbed during the assault.
“It is not a robbery and I will not describe it as just boyish prank. It looks more like pure evil,” Jan Lauritzen states.
The assault happened yesterday around 9 pm, and the police would like to hear from citizens who might have information about the group of youngsters who are all described as being around 15 years old.
A witness who saw the boy who fired the gun describes the perpetrator as being around 15 years old, of Arab origin and wearing a cap. He is strongly built and “walked around like he was carrying two loaves of bread under his arms”.

Jabbed a screwdriver into the thigh of victim
29-year-old dragged into staircase and robbed
A 29-year-old man was assaulted yesterday and exposed to a very brutal robbery, the police report.
The man was walking down Rantzausgade in Copenhagen when he passed a group of youngsters who are described as being of foreign origin.
Suddenly several of the youngsters grabbed the 29 year old and dragged him up the stairs in a stairwell. Here he was beaten in the face until his lip split while they demanded his money.
The victim had no money, however, and it ended with the group cutting the shoulder straps of his rucksack and jabbing a screwdriver twice into the back of his thigh, policeman Henrik Vedel says to eb.dk.
Bleeding, the victim staggered down the stairs and got help from bystanders, who called an ambulance.
Now the police are searching for witnesses. The 29-year-old was attacked near Rantzausgade 30, but they have not yet found the actual staircase into which the victim was dragged. The assault happened around 01:40.
Please contact the Copenhagen police if you have any information.
