TWO MEN IN Germany have been arrested after abusing a woman and her two children on a train, with one witnessed urinating on the family.

National newspaper the Berliner Zeitung describes the men as neo-Nazis and says the incident happened on Saturday night on a Berlin train. The two men began shouting racist insults at the woman and her two children, aged around five and 15.

Witnesses said they roared “Heil Hitler” and other Nazi slogans and referred to the woman and her children as a “pack of asylum seekers”. One of the men is then said to have exposed himself to the children before urinating on them.

The men, aged 32 and 37, were arrested after witnesses on the train called police and upon being breathalysed were found to have high blood alcohol levels.

They were reportedly known to police already and The Local reports proceedings have been initiated against them for racist abuse and bodily harm.
