Witness sought after theft at station

Police are looking for a witness to a theft that took place in the early hours of Sunday morning at Oberursel’s main station.

Between 5.20am and 5.45am on 13th July, 2014, a 20-year-old had his wallet stolen out of his pocket after he fell asleep on a bench.  The two men also tried to take his mobile phone as well, but were disturbed when the S-Bahn entered the station and the man woke up.

During the theft the men were observed by a witness, who thought at first that they were friends with the man on the bench, and it was only after they went separate ways that she realised that she was wrong and told the man he had been robbed.

Detectives in Bad Homburg would like to talk to her and ask that she calls 06172 1200 to contact them.
