A woman was arrested and charged in Vienna for defending herself against a man who was attempting to rape her violently. The charges were only brought, at is seems, because the man was a Syrian immigrant.
The woman was attacked soon before midnight on Tuesday last week as she entered her apartment building on Schönbrunner Strasse in the Meidling area, according to local sources. The assailant grabbed the victim’s privates and tossed her to the ground.
“However, the rape attempt took a dramatic turn when the woman, with foresight, managed to pull a knife from her purse,” according to Remix News.
“She used it to stab her assailant several times until he let go of his victim, grabbed her purse, and fled badly injured.” Shortly after, authorities located the culprit with cuts and knife wounds at a nearby subway station, and he was transported to the hospital.”
