Taxi thieves caught near allotments

Oberursel’s police were able to able to catch two teenagers from Bad Homburg, who it is believed had stolen money from a taxi driver.

The 19 and 17-year-old apparently climbed into the taxi in Frankfurt and asked to go to Oberursel where they directed the driver to the car park “An den Kieskauten”.  Instead of paying they snatched the driver’s wallet out of his hand and then pressured him to hand over three mobile phones.  They fled on foot towards the Lahnstraße, where police caught them still in possession of the stolen goods.

Beware of the “slip of paper” trick

Police in Oberursel are warning people to be aware of the so-called “slip of paper” trick (“Zetteltrick”).

In a recent incident, two women of south-east European appearance, one slim and between 20 and 25 years old, the other over 60 and well built, rang the door bell of a 75-year-old in the Lahnstraße and asked for a piece of paper to write a note on (presumably to leave a message for someone else in the block).

The 75-year-old let them into her flat and while one of the women distracted her, the other searched the flat for valuables.  A watch was stolen.

What happened at the Lahnstraße station?

Police are investigating an incident that took place last Wednesday (7th November, 2012) at the U-Bahn Station “Lahnstraße”.

A 58 year old man heard what is being described as an “explosive-type noise” coming from one of the nearby houses and felt something hurt his thigh.  He had a 4mm graze and may therefore have been hit by some form of projectile.

Hit and run on the Hohemarkstraße

On Saturday, 13th October, 2012 at around 10.25am an 83 year old lady from Oberursel was crossing the Hohemarkstraße using the pedestrian crossing near the U-Bahn stop “Lahnstraße”.

Whilst doing so she was caught by a passing car and fell.  She was slightly hurt.  The car did not stop, but witnesses were able to give enough information to the police in order to trace it.  It turned out that the driver at the time of the accident was also an 83 year old lady from Oberursel.

Police believe that the car went through a red light and failed to see the person on the crossing, who had green.
