In Austria, Afghans have been officially recorded as having 11.7 times the sexual offense rate of non-Afghans. In Germany, they commit rape and sexual assault at 20.7 times the rate of German nationals. Source


A 21-year-old Afghan asylum seeker was arrested in the Austrian city of Linz after luring a woman to a local park where he struck her down and raped her.

The attack occurred on October 1st when a 30-year-old woman was walking around late in the evening having lost her mobile phone. The 21-year-old offered to help the woman find her phone and said that his friends were nearby and she could use their phone. He then led her to a nearby park and raped her, Kronen Zeitung reports.

The migrant was able to escape the scene without being captured, but authorities do not believe it was the only sex attack he committed.
