Police in Frankfurt were attacked by gangs of men, trying to impose measures to socially distance the coronavirus.
The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reports that police were attacked several times, trying to disperse large groups of people gathered on Good Friday, despite measures to socially distance the coronavirus.
Going to a group of people who clearly violated the blocking rules, one police patrol was stoned.
The second police patrol was attacked by a group of 20 people, armed with iron bars, stones and tiles, forcing the patrol to retreat.
Police called in a helicopter patrol to search for criminals by air, following some of the suspects into an apartment in the western district of Griesheim and conducting a raid.
During the raid, six suspects between the ages of 23 and 31 were arrested, and police also confiscated weapons, including samurai swords, nunchucks, and brass knuckles.
