On Sunday evening, 17th of september 2023, an election campaign event of the Bündnis 90/ Die Grünen party took place on Neu-Ulm’s Petrusplatz. On the podium were the party’s top candidates, Katharina Schulze and Ludwig Hartmann. Around 7 p.m., a 44-year-old visitor threw a stone in the direction of the podium. Fortunately, he missed both speakers. The perpetrator was provisionally arrested at the venue, where he put up considerable resistance. The 44-year-old man is charged with attempted dangerous bodily harm after the incident. He also now has to answer for violations of the Assembly Act.
