The authorities in Hagen are now preoccupied with the horrific incident. Two suspects have already been captured, one of them is only 15 years old! His accused accomplice is 19 years old.
The crime occurred on the first of July in the afternoon, according to Bild. Ioana, the escort lady, accepted one of the young people as a client, and afterwards, they started to talk. She should be paid 100 euros for a half-hour of sex.
But according to his statement, the young man did not have that much with him. He wanted to get to the car and the rest.
“Suddenly he came back with other men, some with guns in their hands. I still didn’t take it seriously,” reports Ioanna.
