Two women were attacked on Monday evening at swimming baths in Stein. A 23-year-old insulted them, sprayed them with tear gas and performed the "Hitler salute" - apparently because of a Star of David on a neck chain of one of the women.

Already in the swimming area the two women, aged 47 and 48, noticed the later suspect at 9.45 pm as he made fun of them with his 31-year-old companion.

In the changing room area the 48-year-old woman encountered the young man yet again. He noticed that she was wearing a religious symbol, a Jewish Star of David, on a chain round her neck.
