A group of migrants are accused of sexually assaulting women at a concert in Germany in a copycat of the New Year's Eve attacks in Cologne.

At least 18 women were improperly touched, fondled and groped during the free festival in the city of Darmstadt over the weekend, police said.

Three men from Pakistan have been arrested and at least two more men are being sought by police, who say the number of complainants could rise.

Officers say the victims are receiving counseling while authorities try to cool rising tensions between migrants in the area.

It comes after hundreds of young women were attacked and robbed on December 21 as refugees moved in hunting packs through the concourse of Cologne main railway station.

The Darmstadt men also moved in groups to prey upon unwitting victims, police say.

All the complainants said they were "surrounded" by their tormentors before being "touched and fondled" improperly at the annual free Schlossgrabenfestes music festival.

The three arrested men are aged between 28 and 31 and are Pakistanis seeking asylum in Germany.

All have been charged with sexual crimes as the hunt continues for their accomplices.

Media reports said that at least 15 more women are expected to come forward to file criminal complaints after they were groped at the festival on Sunday where around 100,000 people were in the crowds over the four-day event.

Ever since the events in Cologne there have been numerous reports of migrants sexually attacking German women, but many of them turned out not to be true.

But the Darmstadt victims all came forward independently to tell graphic tales of the assaults which quickly led to the arrest of the men.

The Pakistanis will face deportation to their homeland if found guilty when brought before the courts.
