A 25-year-old Gambian asylum seeker Dawda Jallow widely known as ‘School boy‘ was on Sunday morning, 6th November 2022 stabbed to death during a confrontation he had with another Gambian at a refugee accommodation center in Filderstadt, Sielmingen, Baden-Württemberg, southern Germany.
A joint press release published by the Stuttgart Public Prosecutor’s Office and the Reutlingen Police Headquarters revealed that the suspect, a 26-year-old man has been arrested on urgent suspicion of the crime.
The police statement added that the suspect was expected to appear before a magistrate today, 7th November 2022.
“At around 8.30 a.m., residents of the accommodation called the emergency services and the police and reported that a man had been seriously injured. The emergency services found the 25-year-old man in a room with several heavily bleeding injuries. Despite immediate resuscitation measures, the man’s life could not be saved. Initial investigations at the scene led to the suspicion of a 26-year-old Gambian man who lived in the building but could no longer be found there.
Around nine o’clock, the suspect came to the Filderstadt Police Station on his own initiative and declared that he had had an argument with his 25-year-old compatriot. He was temporarily arrested. The criminal investigation department has taken over the investigation of the incident and the background, which is still ongoing,“ the police statement disclosed.
