Esslingen - A 21-year-old Afghan is suspected in Esslingen to have sexually abused a 12-year-old girl.
According to the Stuttgart public prosecutor, the suspect is in custody. He is said to have abused the girl in the night of May 18 in his room at Esslinger asylum facility, as the authority announced on Wednesday. According to this, the child had voluntarily visited the Afghan with a 16-year-old friend, and some other asylum seekers they knew.
The girls wanted to stay there after missing the last bus. The man is said to have exploited the situation and sexually abused the twelve-year-old. When the other overnight guests woke up, he let go of the girl.
The prosecutor issued a warrant for the arrest of the Afghan, who only sporadically stayed at the property. Last Friday, he was finally arrested there. The man already sought by police for theft is in custody.
