Witnesses sought for attack in Adenauerpark

Police in Oberursel are asking witnesses to come forward after an attack in the Adenauerpark about a month ago at 4am on Friday, 26th July, 2013.

An argument in the park led to one person being so badly injured, that they were taken to Bad Homburg hospital where they underwent an emergency operation.

2. male, around 20 years old, approximately 2m tall, well-built, clean-shaven, with a mole on one cheek.  He had short, dark blond or brown hair and wore a white or light blue t-shirt and blue trousers.

Witnesses so far have said the men were accompanied by two women who were not involved in the argument.

Drunk Driver caused accident on crossing

A collision at the crossing Feldbergstraße / Liebfrauenstraße caused €9,000 of damage late last Thursday (15th August, 2013).

A 19-year-old from Oberursel was driving a grey Skoda Fabia along the Liebfrauenstraße towards the Feldbergstraße.  At the crossing of the two roads the traffic lights were running in “nighttime” mode, ie. they were flashing amber.

The driver entered the crossing without making sure that the Feldbergstraße , where traffic has priority, was clear to enter.

In doing so she hit a grey Toyota Corolla being driven by a 47-year-old from Wehrheim.

Police suspected that the 19-year-old had been drinking alcohol and took a blood sample.

OBG critical of swimming pool supporters’ charity

Local political group the OBG have released a statement criticising the creation of the creation of the “Förderverein Taunabad” – the charity set up by supporters of the new swimming pool.
