Police arrest man at bicycle stand

Police in Oberursel have arrested a man for allegedly trying to steal a bicycle.

They were called by a passer by on Thursday, 3rd August, 2017 at 9.45pm, who had seen a man doing something to a number of bikes at the station.  The police were able to find the 41-year-old man from Oberursel whilst he was still there and took him away for questioning.  He has since been released.

Farewell to the U2

The “U2” type of trains have been running on the lines through Frankfurt since the U-Bahn service started on 4th October, 1968, and have been a regular sight in Oberursel since 1978.  Recently they have been replaced by newer models – the “U5” is currently in use on the U3 line – and last weekend the day arrived for the last ones to be taken out of service.

For one day only, six of the remaining U2 trains, including three of the original sets, travelled back and forth between Oberursel-Bahnhof and Römerstadt, a route that was not even possible until 2010.  Along the route, enthusiasts gathered to use the last opportunity to take photos their last journeys.

Those original three train sets, numbered 303, 304, and 305, have been restored and repainted in their original livery.  They will be joining a collection of historic trains in Frankfurt that are maintained for private hire and special events. [Read more…]

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.
