Ulrike Hellmann is attacked by serial killer Bernd Bopp aka Der Hammermörder at the age of 10 in Mainz, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany.

Hellmann survived and remembered the licence plate number of her attacker's car. Later that day with the car registration number in their hands, Mainz police searched the area for the red Renault car driven by Bernd Bopp. Finding the car parked twenty miles away in Alzey, Bopp was lying in the sunshine near the car reading a book as police approached and arrested him.
