An Afghan refugee has been arrested in Germany for suspected homosexual rape of a teenager as he walked home from a party in Munich.
The attack occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning when the 18-year-old victim, who was heavily intoxicated and traveling alone, was approached on the platform of the Max-Weber-Platz underground station.
The perpetrator took advantage of his victim’s inability to resist and subjected him to a sexual assault which lasted for several hours, according to a Munich police report.
After the ordeal, the attacker stole his victim’s mobile phone and fled the scene undetected.
The teen filed a complaint with the local police the following day and, using the geolocation tracker on the victim’s phone, authorities were able to track the whereabouts of the suspect who was living in Munich.
A 20-year-old Afghan national was arrested on suspicion of rape and transferred to the detention center of Munich police ahead of a preliminary court hearing.
He has been ordered to remain in pre-trial detention pending further investigation.
