Austria: Asylum seeker charged with attempted murder foe stabbing Syrian man who raped him

(Wien) An asylum seeker has been arrested by the Austrian police on charges of attempted murder after he stuck a knife into the chest of another asylum seeker who he claimed raped him.

The 45-year-old man (who, whilst from Morocco, claimed asylum as a 35-year-old Syrian in which to better his chances of a new life in Europe) was invited back to a fellow asylum seeker's room for a glass of lemonade last Sunday. After he drank his soft drink, he passed out, and when he woke up, found he had a sore arse and difficulty in sitting down. Taking himself to the local hospital, he was treated for internal injuries and told the doctors he had been raped by two men.

He returned to the hostel and 10 hours later one of the 2 Syrian men who he claimed had played 'how's your father' with him was found with a knife sticking out of his chest.

From his hospital bed, the alleged rapist has claimed he didn't know why he ended up with a knife in his chest. Police are currently carrying out a blood test on the Moroccan to see if he has traces of a date rape drug in him.

The case continues.
