A 24-year-old refugee who raped a 62-year-old woman in a park last summer in the Saxony region of Germany claims she 'wanted sex'.
The man, identified as Ayoub L, blamed the woman in court. “I sat on a bench, waiting for a friend,” he said. “Then the woman sat next to me, put her hand on my thigh and made me realise that she wanted sex.”

According to Express, the victim claimed Ayoub L. grabbed her by the neck and dragged her into a bush. “Then he tore my pants down and pressed me with his weight to the ground,” she explained. “I could not resist as I was afraid.”
Ayoub left the park shortly thereafter while the woman called police while at a hospital.

The attacker came to Germany as a refugee from Libya in late 2015. Because he had been investigated in other criminal cases, he could easily be identified by DNA traces.
Judge Gudrun Trautmann did not believe the rapist's version of events. “Both his DNA traces and a torn-off headphone of his cell phone at the crime scene point to violence,” he said.
