Some 26 women have filed sexual assault complaints following a music festival in Darmstadt, Germany—and another 15 are expected to come forward. The 26 victims reported being "surrounded" by men who "touched and fondled" them at the Schlossgrabenfest on Saturday, reports the Evening Standard. Another 15 were reportedly assaulted on Sunday. So far three Pakistani men seeking asylum in Germany have been arrested and are accused of assaulting two or three women, reports CNN. (Asylum seekers have been blamed for several other assaults in the country.)
