The Bremen police published CCTV footage on Friday, of the attack on Alternative for Germany (AfD) politician Frank Magnitz, which took place on Monday.
Magnitz is filmed seemingly followed by three unknown men, before being hit from behind by one of them. After Magnitz falls on the ground, the three suspects make a swift escape.
The released footage contradicts the AfD narrative which claimed that three individuals attacked Magnitz with wooden bars and continued to kick him after he fell to the ground.
The police issued a statement on the publication, explaining that it was "as part of a public investigation in the preliminary proceedings conducted on suspicion of the dangerous bodily injury to Magnitz."
