Early last Sunday morning, a young man suddenly attacked a 27-year-old woman on Dresdner Street in Hanover, tore at her clothes and tried to rape her. Apparently the woman successfully resisted, because the perpetrator let go of her. Instead, he robbed her purse and fled with his prey on foot.A police patrol was able to arrest a suspect shortly afterwards: a 19-year-old Afghan. He’s been in custody since Tuesday. According to the newspaper BILD, the refugee has been in Germany since 2016. He has a police record for theft and drug offences, among other things.
