Police in Hamburg are hunting for an armed sex pest.
The suspect is believed to have used a knife to detain a woman at a bus stop before making her walk to a petrol station before making sexual threats.
While the woman was kidnapped, she claimed the man told her the reason for his attack was because she was German and she was asking for it.
In the case of Anter B, there was no reason to arrest him at the time
The 24-year-old man, who is said to have achieved permanent residence status in Hamburg, was charged with ‘verbal abuse and coercion’ according to prosecutors.
However after being freed from custody the man failed to show up for a scheduled court appearance.
A judge issued an arrest warrant for the individual on Tuesday but it has not been confirmed whether he has been apprehended.
The Police in Hamburg are looking for a man who held a woman at knifepoint.
Nana Frombach of the city’s public prosecutor’s office said: “In the case of Anter B, there was no reason to arrest him at the time.
“He has a permanent residence and has turned up for his previous interrogations.”
The arrest warrant was issued just one week after German chancellor Angela Merkel announced far-raging immigration reforms.
Bundestag politicians have instigated an Asylum Procedures Acceleration Act in a bid to speed up the process of deportation.

The German parliament has banned family reunion for two years, meaning battles to bring relatives of migrants over to Germany, as currently happens in Britain, will no longer take place.
And they have introduced a new law to allow for the easier expulsion of offenders in the case of asylum seekers suspected of committing a criminal offence.
Mrs Merkel’s Government says this law will allow them to identify “strange behaviour of foreigners” that could put them at risk of expulsion.
However it is not clear if these new laws will apply to those who have already been granted leave to remain.
Germany is also digitising its immigration protocols as they implement an ‘introduction of proof of arrival’ scheme to identify those who have no paperwork.
The Federal Ministry of Finance will also sanction payments for an integration package for migrants £1.72billion (€2billion) annually from 2016 to 2018.
This is on top of taxpayers spending £37billion (€43billion) for 2016 and 2017 on the migrant budget to “meet the challenges of the nation-state”.
Some cash will come from the EU pooled funds from member states to support aspects of the new legislation.
