On a Sunday evening in March, Innogy Chief Financial Officer Bernhard Günter was walking home through a park in the Düsseldorf suburb Hann. His path was suddenly blocked by a young man just before another man came running from behind and threw Günter to the ground. The two men then poured acid onto Günter's face before fleeing the crime scence.

Both a glove and the bottle which contained the acid have since been found in the park. Neither of the two culprits have been located, nor has any information surfaced regarding the motive. In late September, the Public Prosecutor in Wuppertal closed the case due to the lack of any leads, however, the CFO's employer is not satisfied with the investigation being discontinued.
