Despite a heavy police presence, and the creation of a special “Women’s Safety Area” in Berlin, German police have said that “isolated” sex attacks occurred during this year’s New Year’s Eve celebrations.

In Berlin, where hundreds of thousands of people greeted the New Year in celebrations at the Brandenburg Gate, “isolated sexual attacks” were reported to police, the force tweeted.

The police did not respond to questions on Twitter about the nationality of the alleged perpetrators. “We are pretty sure they have one [a nationality]. Otherwise, this has no further impact on the criminal liability of the crime,” they replied.

“At the #Welcome2018 events in #Berlin, unfortunately, occasional sexual assaults were reported. We do not tolerate such acts! The suspects have been arrested. Our civilian colleagues are also dealing with these crimes,” the police tweeted.

​Berlin police told the German news agency dpa that a total of ten cases where women were sexually assaulted were reported and seven people detained.

In Cologne, nine women reported sexual assault and three suspects were identified, a police spokesman told RTL News.

Cologne was one of the hotspots of the notorious group sex attacks on women which took place at New Year’s Eve 2016. Gangs of men characterized as looking Arab and North African committed sex attacks on women in cities across Germany. More than 1,200 complaints of sexual assault or harassment were made to police in the wake of the celebrations.
