Memmingen (dpa / lby) - An attack on two minors in Memmingen turned out to be a drug deal that went wrong.
As the police reported on Thursday, two 15-year-olds stated that they were attacked in the street by three perpetrators.
One of the teenagers suffered a shoulder injury that had to be treated in hospital.
Extensive investigations have now revealed what really happened that day in mid-January: The 15-year-olds said they had met with the three young men between the ages of 19 and 20 to sell them narcotics.
Because the buyers had apparently been cheated by the two underage dealers at a previous meeting, they came up with the plan to forcibly buy small quantities of cannabis from the 15-year-old without paying.
Both the two victims and the perpetrators are now being investigated.
All five are already known to the police for other offenses.
