A 52-year-old Iraqi man who allegedly raped an 18-year-old girl on a train has already been released, ending up back out on the streets less than 24 hours after his arrest.

The alleged sexual assault occurred on Friday at 6.30 p.m. on a train near Nienburg in Lower Saxony. The Iraqi man allegedly penetrated the woman’s genital area and bit her, resulting in the woman alerting a train attendant about the incident, who called the police.

The man was arrested at Leese station, according to T Online.

Due to injuries the woman sustained, she was transported to the hospital for treatment.

However, the Iraqi man was released by authorities less than 24 hours after his arrest, with the prosecutor claiming the man was not a flight risk, as he had a permanent address on record. The man is still under investigation by police.

The accused has a history of criminal offenses related to drugs and sexual assault.

German public transport has in recent years seen a number of high-profile crimes involving migrants.

In January this year, an Afghan asylum seeker raped a teen who fell asleep on a train, saying that he “felt like it.”

Last year, a Somali migrant was arrested for sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl on a train outside Munich.

Also in 2023, an Afghan migrant was arrested for raping a young teen male in a homosexual attack inside a Munich subway.

However, it is not only Germany’s public transport system that is becoming more dangerous for women and men. A rape crisis has been declared as a result of government crime data showing that 8,590 German women have been sexually assaulted and raped by migrants since 2015.
