According to the police, the 37-year-old had boarded a tram of line 5 at the Robert Siewert- Straße stop in Chemnitz on Saturday evening. The tram was on its way to the Krenkelstraße depot.
“Since the ride ended there, the tram driver asked the man at the Scheffelstraße stop to leave the tram,” said a police spokeswoman.
But the 37-year-old did not want to do this, he insulted the 52-year-old driver and approached him.
“He probably had a cable in his hand, which he used to bang on the closed door of the driver’s cab, causing minor property damage.”
The 37-year-old finally got out of the car, but verbally threatened the driver with death and made appropriate gestures.
The police were able to arrest the suspect shortly afterwards in Annaberger Street. Investigations against the Libyan were started for threat and damage to property.
