East Jutland Police has arrested two 18-year-old men for tying a rope across a street near Thorsø in Marburg and hanging blankets off it, which subsequently knocked a motorcyclist off his bike. 

The motorcyclist saw the rope just in time and slowed done enough so the fall did not cause him major injury. Afterwards, the two men turned themselves into police.

“They called by our headquarters and said that they were behind it,” Carsten Dahl, a spokesperson for East Jutland Police, told TV2 News.

“We are not viewing this as a prank. This could have gone seriously wrong.”

Party blankets
The two men have been charged with intent to cause bodily harm and were released after questioning.They will appear before court at a later date.
