It can hardly be believed: The man (23), who is alleged to have raped a 13-year-old in Dortmund on Friday, apparently struck a month before!
On June 20, the Afghan allegedly raped an 11-year-old. “It was a similar incident,” confirmed prosecutor Börge Klepping about the earlier incident, when answering a question from BILD. To protect the now 12-year-old victim he did not want to give details.
Shortly after the crime, the man was arrested, but after only twelve days, on July 3, he was released from custody under reporting requirements. Reason: No risk of flight.
The prosecutor: “He had previously been named in a drug offense, but not in connection with sex crimes. He had a fixed residence, and so there was no flight risk.”
On Friday it is alleged that the Afghan, who has a temporary resident permit, lured a 13-year-old into a hallway and raped her. Because the girl gave a good description, her tormentor was arrested Saturday night.
Prosecutor Klepping: “He is in custody for serious sexual abuse (rape).”
