Berlin police called over bus seat brawl

On what was otherwise a relatively calm Sunday afternoon, German police were called out to deal with a dispute that ended in a bloody brawl. Why had the brawl started? Gang violence? Money? No, the brawl started with an argument over a bus seat.

A brawl involving two men on public transport in Berlin has led to a police investigation on grounds of assault. Initial reports suggest that the two men, aged 31 and 38, got into an argument over a seat on the 247 bus at Nauener Platz.

According to the police, the 31-year-old threatened the other man with a knife, who promptly took the knife and hit the 31-year-old several times in the face. The younger man refused medical treatment afterwards, despite bleeding heavily from his nose.
