The residential building of German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz in Hamburg's Altona district was attacked early morning on Friday.
A witness called police after seeing a group of around 15 people throw jam jars filled with black paint against the house wall.
In front of the building, there is a police guardhouse which is only staffed when Scholz is at home. According to reports, the group... Еще tried to set the guardhouse on fire by lighting a tyre. The small flames were later put out by police.
An investigation on the perpetrators is underway.
Scholz, alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel, departed for the G20 summit in Buenos Aires on Thursday, but the plane then had to land in Cologne due to a technical problem.
