A Syrian refugee has been arrested in Germany on suspicion of attempting to kill his three children.
The unidentified man, 35, was detained after witnesses said they saw him dropping the children one-by-one from a first storey asylum centre window.
When medics arrived at the scene they found a seven-year-old girl and five-year-old boy suffering from serious head and internal injuries.
Another boy, aged one, suffered minor injuries and was handed back to his mother following a night in hospital under observation.
The incident took place in the town of Lohmar, which is close to the city of Cologne. The city has found itself at the centre of German anti-refugee sentiment in recent weeks.
Speaking of the incident, police spokesman Stefan Birk was quoted byMailOnline as saying: “The man offered no resistance during his arrest.”
The asylum centre, which used to be a Chinese restaurant, was designated a crime scene, according to reports.
The Syrian family are said to have lived in a large apartment in the building, sharing a bathroom and kitchen with several other families.
The incident took place in the town of Lohmar, which is close to the city of Cologne.
Cologne has found itself at the centre of German anti-refugee sentiment in recent weeks.
On New Year’s Eve hundreds of women claimed to have been assaulted by men of “Middle Eastern or North African” origin while walking through the city centre.
Thousands of Germans have since taken to the streets in protest at the country’s refugee policy which saw more than a million asylum seekers settle there in 2015.
