A Macedonian immigrant has been arrested in Vienna on suspicion of committing at least one rape as well as a series of molestations or attempted rapes. There’s no word on the alleged perp’s religion, but there is a substantial Muslim minority in Macedonia, somewhere between 3% and 10%. And “Ibraim J” doesn’t sound like a Christian name to me.
Below is a brief Austrian news report on the case. Many thanks to Nash Montana for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
Serial Sex Criminal: Already 10 Victims
Arrested 22-year-old is assumed to have raped a 15-year-old.
Based on attempted rapes, the police on Monday published pictures of the suspect — the assumed sex offender: a 22-year-old man from Macedonia who is living in Austria illegally with his fiancée Claudia (name changed). She had presumably fished the slender pretty boy from the internet two years ago.
It is probably slowly dawning on the Vienna native just what a terrible mistake she made. Because in the meantime Ibraim J. has been accused of ten cases of rape, in which he pursued women from the U2 as well as the Bim-Line 26 or the 26A bus lines on their way home.
Investigations broadened into lower Austria
Normally he would put his arms around his intended victims from behind with all of his force and then grabbed them between the legs or under their skirts, not showing thereby any age-specific preferences — the youngest was 15; the oldest victim was 46. He even attacked two women in separate incidents in just one night. Most of the women could defend themselves from the attacks through biting, screaming, or through help of friends or other passersby.
Only one girl (15) did not have that chance — she was raped in the stairway of her parents’ apartment building. On Tuesday alone seven women identified their attacker in a police lineup. But there could be more. As Ibraim J. also worked in a Pizzeria north of Vienna, the investigation is now being broadened into lower Austria. The rule of presumed innocent until proven guilty is in effect.
