Major deployment of special Police Command at the District foreign Office in the German Federal State, Nord-West Mecklenburg in the town Wismar.

A mother with an infant and a man from Ghana are hanging around at the Foreigners Office. According to Jessica Lehrke, press spokeswoman for the Wismar police, the man wanted to force the recognition of paternity in order to legally stay in Germany.

He held the baby in his hands. The closer the policemen approached him, the more aggressive his behaviour became and he "then acted on the infant" he held in front of his chest. In between, the mother breastfed the baby while it remained permanently in the hands of the man. An emergency doctor was on site to examine the baby. She was unharmed. A special police intervention team tried for hours to bring about a peaceful end to the situation.

Since about the time 14:30 at the entrance to the Rostocker street near the police station of Wismar and the office building was closed off. Then at around 20:00 the access took place. To the great relief of all those involved, the access took place without bloodshed. After almost seven hours, the negotiating group was successful. The child was handed over unharmed to a doctor, the man was arrested and taken away.
