A teenage rape suspect who reportedly tried to attack an Austrian female worker in jail learned his lesson the hard way.
When the 16-year-old asylum seeker allegedly assaulted a female prison warden, he had no idea she was a martial arts expert, The Local reports. She effortlessly blocked the attack and had her coworkers carry him back to his cell.
Back in April, the teen was one of three Afghani asylum seekers charged for sexually assaulting a woman in a public toilet in Vienna’s Praterstern station.
The 21-year-old victim, who is a student, was out with a friend that night when she stopped to use a public bathroom.
The three suspects allegedly followed the student into the women’s bathroom by using a coin to unlock the door while she was inside and raped her.
The woman had her head knocked against the toilet and was held down by two of the suspects while her mouth was covered so she could not scream out for help, according to the police report.
“When the friend of the student looked in on her shortly after, she found the young woman lying on the floor of the toilet,” police spokesperson Roman Hahslinger said.
The victim sounded the alarm immediately after the attack. The suspects -- who were all between the ages of 16 and 17 years old -- were arrested near the station after 100 police officers were called in.
At first, the trio denied the assault, but they later confessed to their involvement. The female victim also verified their identities.
Authorities reportedly suspect the trio had lied to their custodians so they could travel to Vienna together, and police said they have reason to believe the attack was premeditated.
Prison officials have not commented on the specifics or motivation behind the female prison warden attack. They would only verify that she successfully fought off the suspect and pinned him to the ground.
According to the officials, the teenage prisoner has been moved to a more secure prison and will be facing charges over the assault.
