Following the sexual assaults on women at the main railway station in Cologne and in other German cities on New Year’s Eve where groups of men have surrounded, groped and robbed women(in Munich women have reportedly been harassed in front of a disco), the sales of pepper spray (mace) and other self-defence articles in Germany exploded, although the sales have been rising throughout the year, reports.
