After several robberies, the Hamburg police arrested a 14-year-old.
Together with two other 15 and 16 year old suspects, he is said to have threatened children and young people in Hamburg's old town several times and stole their clothes.
The police announced on Friday in Hamburg.
On Thursday, investigators then searched the apartments of the three young people.
Hamburg - According to the police, evidence and parts of the loot were found there.
After the third attack, civil investigators had already caught two other young people aged 14 and 16.
The police had to let them go again because there were no grounds for imprisonment.
After further investigation, investigators identified the group of perpetrators whose homes have now been searched.
Because the 14-year-old is suspected of having committed a robbery in August, the public prosecutor has now applied for an arrest warrant.
The other two suspects were allowed to stay at home after the search.
