A young man drove his car, seemingly on purpose, into a group of people in Berlin after a family fight escalated. He left five injured and could face charges of attempted murder.


After a fight between two groups – both from a large Serbian family – over whether or not to travel back to their home country, the 23-year-old got in his car and charged at the group of seven.

He left two men, aged 27 and 28, seriously injured and three less so. If one of the injured dies, he could face charges of manslaughter, the Berliner Zeitung said on Thursday.

He ran away shortly after the incident, which took place in a car park, but then at nearly 1am he turned up at a nearby police station in the Neukölln area of the city, wanting to press charges on the opposing group for bodily harm.

The officers realized who the man was from his ID card, and arrested him.
