Two Afghanistan migrant men force 14-year-old boy to perform sex acts on them at a swimming pool in Germany
- Afghan men, 20 and 25, accused of sexually assaulting a teenage boy
- The men approached two boys, 14 and 11, at a pool in west Germany
- They cornered the 14-year-old and ‘forced him to perform sexual acts’
Two Afghan asylum seekers have been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a 14-year-old boy at a public swimming pool in Germany.
The incident reportedly took place at an indoor pool in Delbrück, North Rhine-Westphalia, on Friday afternoon.
The Afghan men, aged 20 and 25, are said to have cornered the 14-year-old in the showers, where they forced him to perform sexual acts on both of them.
The alleged victim had been swimming in the public pool with an 11-year-old friend when they were approached by the two Afghan migrants.
At around 4.45pm, the two boys left the pool area and were followed by the men to the showers, Westfalen-Blatt reports.
According to a police report, the 11-year-old was able to hide, but the 14-year-old was grabbed by the two men in the changing room.
After this, the 20-year-old and the 25-year-old ‘forced him against his will to perform sexual acts on both men’.
Lifeguards were notified immediately, and the Afghan men could be arrested at the indoor pool.
The pair were brought before a judge in Paderborn on Saturday, and have been detained.
There have been several attacks reported in Germany at public pools, and in neighbouring Austria an Iraqi asylum seeker is awaiting trial for the brutal rape of a young boy in a pool changing room.
Germany has spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on the distribution of posters in numerous languages aimed at asylum seekers, informing them of correct behaviour towards women.
Local swimming pools have become a focus of efforts to try to educate the new arrivals to respect women and girls, even if they are wearing bathing costumes.
