The Wiesbaden public prosecutor’s office and the Wiesbaden Criminal Investigation Department are currently investigating three Afghan refugees aged 19 and 23 years on suspicion of rape. All three are suspected of having raped a 19-year-old woman at a construction site in the area of Moritz-Hilf-Street in Wiesbaden on the evening of the 7th of April 2020. Arrest warrants have now been issued for all three suspects.
After the crime, the victim revealed herself to a confidante who, together with her, informed the police on the 11th of April 2020. According to this information, one of the two 19-year-olds is the victim’s former boyfriend, with whom she had an appointment on the evening of the crime and whom she then also met. At this meeting, the accused was accompanied by two family members who had come from Berlin to visit Wiesbaden. It was during this meeting that the sexual assaults occurred.
After a report on the incident as well as initial investigations and securing of evidence, the 19-year-old former friend of the victim was arrested at his place of work in Idstein on the 13th of April 2020 and taken into custody after being brought before a judge. This was followed by extensive criminal investigations in Wiesbaden and Berlin, which finally led to the arrest of the other two suspects in Berlin. These two men, aged 19 and 23, are now also in custody. The criminal investigations in the proceedings are still ongoing.
