Mitten in Hamburg, mitten am Tag

Ein 33-Jähriger hat im Hamburger S-Bahnhof Jungfernstieg auf seine Exfrau und seine einjährige Tochter eingestochen. Das Kind verstarb noch am Tatort, die Frau erlag ihren Verletzungen im Krankenhaus. Der Täter rief später persönlich die Polizei und ist inzwischen gefasst. Um kurz nach zwölf liegt über dem Jungfernstieg eine seltsame Stimmung zwischen Horror und Normalität.


 The man was a migrant who was in a custody battle over his daughter and he feared he would be sent back.

Anmerkung der Redaktion

In der Regel berichtet die SZ nicht über ethnische, religiöse oder nationale Zugehörigkeiten mutmaßlicher Straftäter. Wir weichen nur bei begründetem öffentlichen Interesse von dieser im Pressekodex vereinbarten Linie ab. Das kann bei außergewöhnlichen Straftaten wie Terroranschlägen oder Kapitalverbrechen der Fall sein oder bei Straftaten, die aus einer größeren Gruppe heraus begangen werden (wie Silvester 2015 in Köln). Ein öffentliches Interesse besteht auch bei Fahndungsaufrufen oder wenn die Biografie einer verdächtigen Person für die Straftat von Bedeutung ist. Wir entscheiden das im Einzelfall und sind grundsätzlich zurückhaltend, um keine Vorurteile gegenüber Minderheiten zu schüren.

Editor's note

As a rule, the SZ does not report on ethnic, religious or national allegations of suspected offenders. We only deviate from this line agreed in the Press Code for justified public interest. This may be the case for exceptional offenses such as terrorist attacks or capital crimes, or for crimes committed by a larger group (such as New Year's Eve 2015 in Cologne). There is also a public interest in search of a wanted man or if the biography of a suspected person is relevant to the offense. We decide this on a case-by-case basis and are fundamentally reluctant to avoid prejudice against minorities.
