A 20-year-old Iraqi migrant raped a 10-year-old boy in the bathroom of a Vienna swimming pool. When questioned by Austrian police, the Iraqi man said it was a “sexual emergency,” The Telegraph reports.
The migrant said he had not had sex in four months, and he “followed his desires.” He also told investigators that he had “not withstood having any sex because he had a marked surplus of sexual energy.”
On December 2, the 20-year-old man followed the boy as he left the pool and headed to the showers, The Local reported. The Iraqi man then persuaded the boy to enter a toilet stall and raped him.
Following the attack, the boy went to the lifeguard in tears and explained what happened. The suspect went to enjoy a jump off a three-meter diving board.
An ambulance came for the boy, and police arrested the suspect at the pool. The boy was hospitalized due to injuries he suffered during the attack.
Austrian police say they did not release details following the attack in order “to protect the victim.”
